Russia: Federal Passenger Company cancels trains to several CIS countries

Federal Passenger Company (FPC), Russian Railways (RZD) subsidiary, has cancelled a series of passenger trains to several CIS countries, including Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan. The main reason behind the decision is  low profitability generated by traffic on those routes.

“The decision to cancel the trains was made as part of adjusting the 2014-2015 schedule due to low profitability,”  a representative of FPC stated. “But the schedule’s route remains, so a train can be added, if needed,” he added.

Trains to Belarus, Uzbekistan, Moldova and Abkhazia were not cancelled.
