The head of the Duma Committee on transport and construction Yevgeny Moskvichev supports the creation of a new Russian low-cost airline and believes that these budget airlines in Russia should be more.

Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister Maxim Akimov said in an interview with RIA Novosti that he considers advisable the creation of a new low-cost airline for the solution of problems of air transport accessibility in Russia. The Minister of transport of the Russian Federation Evgenie Dietrich told reporters that the Ministry of transport supports creation of new low-cost carrier in all directions, primarily on domestic routes.

«We support the creation of a new Russian low cost airline and, moreover, believe that such budget airlines in Russia should be more: at least three or four. And economic resources for the implementation of this idea enough. Though they work in the end without a profit, but are not unprofitable,» said Moskvichev reporters.

Now in Russia there is one low-cost carrier — airline «Victory» («daughter» of «Aeroflot»).
