Aeroflot on 29 March will move to its summer flight schedule, which will be valid through 24 October 2015.
This summer Aeroflot will fly to 123 destinations in 52 countries. The airline will fly to 70 destinations outside Russia, including 47 cities in Europe, 13 in Asia, five in Americas and five in the Middle East and Africa.
The schedule continues to position Aeroflot as the top choice for travellers to Russia, offering more flights from more destinations. The timetable will also continue to expand Aeroflot’s international transit traffic offering, as passengers recognise the convenience of travel between European destinations and Asia via Aeroflot’s world-class Moscow hub.
Aeroflot’s domestic offering will also remain robust under the new timetable, including travel to 43 Russian destinations. The frequency of the Company’s flights to St. Petersburg has been increased to 199 flights per week, or 17 flights per day. The growing trend of domestic tourism in Russia, including increased demand for popular resort destinations, has been factored into the new schedule. The frequency of flights to Crimea and the Krasnodar Region has been increased. Aeroflot standalone will carry out up to 63 flights to Crimea or 9 flights per day.
The traditional summer routes to Heraklion and Split will remain a part of the schedule. Three weekly flights to Phuket, which had historically been a winter route, have also been added.
Aeroflot’s network will be strengthened by 102 routes operated by Aeroflot Group subsidiaries. Aeroflot Group subsidiaries include Rossiya, the leading airline operating from Russia’s second-largest city St. Petersburg; Far East regional airline Aurora; southern Russia regional airline Donavia; charter operator Orenair; and low-cost carrier Pobeda.
An additional 130 routes will be carried out on the basis of code-sharing agreements with airline partners. Altogether including code shares Aeroflot will fly 355 routes to over 65 countries.
