Official: Moscow air taxi ride will cost about $45

A 15-minute by air taxi flight in Moscow, Russia will cost about 3 thousand rubles ($45), said Alexander Okhonko, general director of BP-Technology, which is part of the Russian Helicopters holding.

“We plan about 3,000 rubles ($45) for a business-class helicopter taxi fare and 2,700 rubles ($40) for a classic seat,” he said.

Earlier it became known that Russian online ride-sharing service, Yandex.Taxi, plans to launch Russia’s first regular helicopter flights, available for order through the application on a smartphone. Today, an agreement with BP-Technology was signed at the MAKS-2019 air show.

In the future, another additional option will appear in the application – at certain sections of the path it will be possible to use a helicopter instead of a car.

It is assumed that test flights to the suburbs of the Russian capital city and to the Moscow Ring Road will begin next year.
