The total volume of cargo transportation in russia, including postal, fell by 59.45% to 599 tons as a result of sanctions, falling below the level of 2001, when russian airlines transported 614 tons of cargo. This was reported by the russian media.
Passenger air transportation also decreased by 14.21%, to 95.2 million people. It is noted that international transportation previously accounted for 77% of the cargo flow of russian airlines. However, after the closure of international markets and the risk of arrests of aircraft abroad, russia’s largest cargo airlines AirBridgeCargo, SkyGates and Atran have still not resumed flights.
