Russian airlines resume international flights


Russian airlines are starting to resume international flights as the government cleared the restoration of services to countries including the UK and Turkey.

Aeroflot is restarting its routes from Moscow Sheremetyevo to London Heathrow and Istanbul today, 1 August. Both routes are flown by Boeing 777s. Pobeda, Aeroflot’s budget carrier, is also scheduled to fly to Istanbul, from Moscow Vnukovo.

Turkish Airlines will resume flights to Vnukovo as well, alongside St Petersburg and Rostov-on-Don. These flights are scheduled to take place over the next three days. Pegasus Airlines is planning to operate flights between Istanbul and Moscow Domodedovo starting today.

Rosaviatsia, the Russian federal air transport regulator, says services to and from Turkey will be “significantly increased” from 10 August forwards. Aeroflot is planning to resume operations to Antalya as S7 Airlines, Ural Airlines, Nordwind, Azur Air, Rossiya and other carriers are all planning to start services as well.
