Aeroflot Group Announces Operating Results for April 2020

Aeroflot has announced operating results for Aeroflot Group and Aeroflot – Russian Airlines for April and 4M 2020, which demonstrated the dramatic effect the coronavirus COVID-19 is having on airlines around the world.  The Aeroflot Group saw passenger number plummet by over 95% during April this year as the pandemic decimated demand and travel restrictions virtually grounded aircraft all over the world.  
April 2020 Operating Highlights
In April 2020, Aeroflot Group carried 229.0 thousand passengers, a year-on-year decrease of 95.2%. Aeroflot airline carried 147.7 thousand passengers, a year-on-year decrease of 95.2%. 
Group and Company RPKs were down 95.4% and 95.5% year-on-year, respectively. ASKs decrease by 89.6% for Aeroflot Group and by 89.1% for Aeroflot airline. 
Aeroflot Group’s passenger load factor was 35.4%, representing a 45.3 percentage point decrease versus the same period a year earlier. The passenger load factor at Aeroflot – Russian Airlines decreased by 47.2 percentage points year-on-year to 32.8%. 

4M 2020 Operating Highlights
In 4M 2020, Aeroflot Group carried 11.4 million passengers, 34.7% down year-on-year. Aeroflot airline carried 7.1 million passengers, a year-on-year decrease of 38.5%.
Group and Company RPKs decreased by 35.4% and 38.6% year-on-year, respectively. ASKs decrease by 27.1% year-on-year for the Group and by 27.7% year-on-year for the Company. 
The passenger load factor decreased by 8.9 p.p. year-on-year to 69.7% for Aeroflot Group and decreased by 11.5 p.p. to 65.4% for Aeroflot airline. 
Impact of coronavirus pandemic
In 4M and April 2020, operating results were affected by the dynamics of demand and significant flight restrictions imposed amid the spread of the novel coronavirus infection. In addition to the suspension 
of international flights, quarantine restrictions in Russia and passengers’ propensity to travel amid pandemic affected the decline in domestic traffic indicators. 

Aeroflot Group has optimized the planned flight program, reducing capacity in April by 90%. Operated flights provided for the minimum connectivity between Moscow and the regions. Due to the mentioned restrictions, which affected demand, flights were operated with a reduced load, taking into account the reduction in capacity the number of flights in April was only 4.5 thousand.
After reduced traffic volumes in April and May, in June Aeroflot Group begins to gradually restore operating volumes (Pobeda airlines will resume flights on June 1), initially focusing on the progressive resumption of flights to domestic destinations.

Fleet update
In April 2020, Aeroflot Group phased out one Airbus А330-300 aircraft. As of 30 April 2020, Group and Company fleet had 360 and 246 aircraft, respectively.
