Getting «Aeroflot» five stars from the British consulting company Skytrax may lead to higher prices for tickets, said the General Director of a carrier Vitaly Savelyev.

The airline in April 2016 was awarded four stars by Skytrax. Later Saveliev said that Aeroflot is seeking to obtain five stars.

«History shows that those companies that entered the list of «five star», increased its capitalization to 1.5-2 times… we assess whether our passengers to afford such a service as «five stars», because, of course, the more expensive the tickets will happen, we will see what, and then make the final decision», — he said in his speech at the annual meeting of shareholders.

Saveliev recalled that in the world there are only nine five-star airlines and among them are the carriers nor from Europe nor from the United States.

The group of «Aeroflot» in January-may 2017 increased transportation of passengers compared to the same period last year 15.9%, to 18.3 million people.
