On domestic routes, Group traffic and RPKs grew by 33.2% and 28.2% year-on-year, respectively, in April 2015. This growth was mainly driven by increased flight frequencies and carrying capacities on high-demand routes.

On international routes, Group traffic was down by 3.4% and RPKs were down by 3.6% year-on-year, respectively, in April 2015. Aeroflot airline’s traffic and RPKs increased by 1.9% and 2.9% year-on-year, respectively. The Company’s growth on international routes was supported by a decrease in competition as a result of lowering of flight frequencies to Russia by several foreign carriers, as well as by growth of international transit traffic through Sheremetyevo airport.
