MOSCOW, December 27. /TASS/. Russia’s flagship carrier Aeroflot did not raise its tariffs for the days of the 2018 World Cup, a spokesperson with the airline told TASS.

Earlier, the publication of RBC published a study saying that the prices for air tickets to the cities of the World Cup 2018 soared by an average of 230%.

“Aeroflot uses a dynamic pricing system. The main principle: the earlier a customer buys a ticket, the higher the opportunity to buy it at minimum tariffs, and vice versa, the later it is purchased, the higher the chance that tickets will remain at maximum rates. The tickets for the days of the World Cup 2018 are in high demand, and customers primarily buy tickets at minimum tariffs, “the spokesperson told TASS.

The RBC study analyzed the prices for the cheapest tickets that were available in December 2017 for all routes between the cities hosting World Cup soccer games.
