The Federal Anti-Monopoly Service has found evidence of price collusion between four Russian airlines: Aeroflot, UTair, S7 and Ural Airlines.
Although the airlines have different expenses and different networks, “from Irkutsk to Moscow and back, they all offered practically the identical maximum ticket prices,” the service said in a press release Thursday.
S7 and UTair both denied the allegations, with a source inside S7 telling Kommersant that it is “absolutely incorrect” to compare the prices to different cities.
