Almaty. August 27. KazTAG - The federal anti-monopoly service of Russia is negotiating creation of the low-cost airlines with Kazakhstan and Russia, said Igor Artemyev, head of the Russian anti-monopoly service.
"It is important to develop the system of low-cost airlines. We asked our Kazakh, Belarus friends to think about creation of the carriers of this class, which might compete with our low cost airlines. It takes long time to develop it. They have not realized yet that it is very beneficial business and important for the society," he said in the interview to RIA Novosti.
He added that Russia needs 5-6 low cost airlines, and the states of the Customs Union need at least one in each state.
"We would like to have 5-6 low cost companies in Russia and other several companies in friendly states, at least one in the Customs Union, so that they were involved in the international transportations," said Artemyev.
