Pobeda Charges for non-Russia Check-In Due to Rising Fuel Prices

UrBC, Moscow, August 9, 2018. The Russian low-cost airline Pobeda (a member of Aeroflot Group) is going to start charging its customers ˆ25 for checking in at non-Russian airports, TASS refers to the air carrier as announcing.

The airline says the decision was made after a recent increase in jet fuel prices. Online check-in is still free.

The new rule comes into effect on October 28, 2018, when Pobeda switches to a wintertime schedule. The airline has to opt for this to avoid having to raise ticket prices because of growing jet fuel costs, the company says.

According to the airline’s Director-General Andrei Kalmykov, their expenses went up by 10% throughout the year because of the fuel price increase.
