The increases had to do with the growing demand for summertime flights.

This included 2,697 international flights, 4,953 domestic flights, and 1,838 flights around the CIS, which was, respectively, 31%, 34%, and 43% more than a year earlier. 2,116 flights were operated in June, which was 28% more than in June 2010.
