"This year, we will increase passenger traffic on many routes, including Crimea," Savelyev said at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Savelyev added that the ticket price for flights to Crimea will not be subject to seasonal fluctuation.

Aeroflot flew a total of 23.6 million passengers in 2014.
