Why Russians are afraid of airplanes Statistically, air travel the safest, but it does not change the fact that a considerable number of people experience a fear of flying. Thus, 84% of Russian citizens are afraid of flying. However, our airline, to the best of their forces, trying to cope with the fears of their potential customers. The greatest success achieved in this, perhaps, “Aeroflot”. Carrier during the “reign” CEO Vitaly Savelyev, who, incidentally, have offered to re-elect another 5 years, seriously updated its fleet. The average age of aircraft “Aeroflot” is about five years. This is a very good indicator.Agree, not every one of you can boast even a car of this age, and now 139 aircraft, each worth millions of dollars. Most of the fleet are aircraft of the A320 family, the A330 and the Sukhoi SuperJet-100. In the period up to 2020 “Aeroflot” plans to buy 126 more modern Russian aircraft and 58 foreign. But it’s all in the future, but for now take a look at the machines that are available now. On top of these, even flying is not scary))
