The importance of development of air communication between the towns and regions of Volga federal district was also marked at the meeting.

The Russian Security Council secretary Nikolai Patrushev said it was necessary to work up a special program on development of the interregional aviation. Air communication is often the only way to provide for the mobility of local population in Russia and for social-economic development of the remote territories.
