On 7 March 2016 the Russian Government approved a list of passengers that must purchase tickets only from Russian or other Member States of the Eurasian Economic Union air-plane companies (Decree No. 171).
The main passengers are:

  • military officers and members of their family;
  • participants in the National Programme to assist the voluntary resettlement of compatriots living abroad;
  • specialists that take part in tax control;
  • astronauts, candidate astronauts, instructor-astronauts and members of their families.

Decree No. 171 contains two exceptions to the general rule for the mentioned passengers to fly only with Russian or other Member States of the Eurasian Economic Union air-plane companies:

  • First,if for the respective departure date no Russian or other Member States of the Eurasian Economic Union air-plane flights are available.
  • Second, if a Russian or other Member States of the Eurasian Economic Union airline does not operate flights to the requested geographic destination.

 
Please note that federal civil servants travelling on business trips were obliged to purchase tickets only from Russian or other Member States of the Eurasian Economic Union air-plane companies recently by Presidential Decree No 492 of 30 September 2015 (related GTA report No. 11142).
