Moscow, 27 September 2018 – Aeroflot launches its winter flight schedule on 28 October, with flights to a number of new European and Asian destinations.

Sun-seekers will enjoy new five-times-per-week service to Colombo, the commercial and cultural capital of Sri Lanka, as well as three weekly flights to the capital of Bali, Denpasar (flights will be operated by Aeroflot subsidiary Rossiya Airlines).

In Europe, Aeroflot is also launching new daily flights to Ljubljana, Gothenburg and Dublin.

Under the new winter flight schedule, Aeroflot will increase frequencies to popular leisure destinations Dubai, Bangkok and Phuket. Flights to Dubai will operate four times per day, with one flight per day flying from Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport to the modern Al Maktoum International Airport, which is easily accessible from the most popular resorts and busiest commercial centres of the city. On the Moscow-Bangkok route Aeroflot will now offer four daily flights, while the number of weekly flights on the Moscow-Phuket route will increase from seven to ten.

Additional flight frequencies and the new destinations further expand transit opportunities for travellers flying between Europe and Asia. In recent years Aeroflot has established a reputation as a top choice for transit passengers, offering customers convenient connections through the company’s Moscow hub. Moscow’s geographical location and the seamless connectivity through modern facilities at Sheremetyevo Airport mean that journeys between different continents can be two hours or even shorter than via other major hubs. At the same time, Aeroflot offers its passengers top-class service and some of the most affordable fares globally.

Vitaly Saveliev, CEO of Aeroflot, said:

“Today Aeroflot ranks as a leading global carrier and we continue to expand our international route network. This winter we will open new routes as well as increasing flight frequencies to popular destinations. We are pleased to offer travellers new international destinations as well as additional flights to popular tourist destinations, thus expanding travel options with Aeroflot for both business and leisure travellers.”
