International traffic growth was supported by a continued decline in competition as several foreign carriers had reduced flight frequencies to Russia, Aeroflot airline’s higher transit traffic through its Sheremetyevo hub and Transaero’s exit from the market which triggered a reallocation of traffic and routes amongst market players.
