Planes from Ufa to Simferopol will start flying already this season. This was reported by the President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov at a press conference in Bashinform News Agency on Monday, April 28.

“The fare will be determined by the federal government. Subsidies will be made at the expense of the federal budget. Thus, a round-trip ticket should cost about six or seven thousand rubles,” the head of the republic said.

According to Rustem Khamitov, "most likely it will be the «Red Wings» company. "

Rustem Khamitov admitted that he was an ardent supporter of all domestic products and primarily of all aviation.

“That is because I understand that the aircraft industry is the top element of machine building and everything that was made by people on the earth. This is the most complicated machine. And if our country makes aircrafts it means that we are on a very good level. If we had not built them — then we would not have any prospects. And so Ufa Engine-Building Plant works at full capacity.”

At the end of May — beginning of June a press tour is planned to Belogorsky region of Crimea, the President added.
