October 21-22, 2014 marked 12th chapter of the international Wings of Russia aviation forum, the largest and most reputable annual industry conference. 

Round 400 participants, including executives and experts of 50 Russian and international airlines, regulators, airports, financial and insurance companies, industry bodies and travel industry joined in the discussions and heard reports on the burning issues of air transport market development in Russia. 

This year for the first time the forum’s format resembled a debate club: participants openly shared their visions of the current state of affairs in civil aviation, they tried to assess the risks and forecast further situation development.

Numerous panel discussions saw active participation from airline and airport executives, as well as representatives of Russian Transport Ministry, Civil Aviation Agency (Rosaviaciya), Federal Antimonopoly Service and Federal Tariff Service, Russian Tour Operator Association and Russian Travel Industry Union, Transport Clearing House, GosNII GA (State Research Institute of Civil Aviation), and a number of leasing, insurance and consulting companies.

Panel discussion called “Current state and perspectives of the Russian air transport development under economy slowdown” for the first time raised concerns of possible bankruptcy of Russia’s major airlines, voiced possible remedies and future scenarios of the air transport market development. There was a collision of views on the essence, the depth and the possible consequences of the crisis in the industry.

Round Table called “Air Fares: influence factors and limitations” was just as lively. Participants pointed out the paradox of the current moment: to survive the ongoing depreciation airlines need to raise their domestic fares, whereas the State presses carriers to lower their prices. They debated various ways of overcoming this discrepancy.

Panel discussion called “The challenges of the sanction war” for the first time openly debated the effect of US and European sanctions on the Russian air transport, possible risks that Russian airlines may face if the EU imposes new requirements on the third country operators. And here again, the assessments voiced by the debate participants were often conflicting and clearly opposite. 

Many speakers underlined the fact that the air transport market is living through substantial changes; business and regulators are pressed to urgently find efficient solutions, which can ensure the industry’s sustainability and stable functioning under stagnant economy and complicated geopolitical situation.
