Aeroflot Airlines received daily permits for regular flights from Moscow to Port Louis (Mauritius). The corresponding order of the Federal Air Transport Agency was published on the regulator’s website on June 2.
We will remind, earlier the headquarters for the fight against COVID-19 allowed to launch flights with Mauritius from June 10, although the country itself remains closed to foreign tourists at least until June 30. There is no need to talk about a significant tourist flow there – we are talking here rather about individual travelers. In addition, only those who have been vaccinated make sense to go to Mauritius – for the rest, the requirement for a mandatory quarantine of 14 days remains.
Aeroflot also received permission to fly from Moscow to Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) in the winter schedule of 2021-22. In the summer, Royal Flight requested permission to fly the same route three times a week (as well as from St. Petersburg). Azur air approved flights up to two frequencies per week on routes from Novosibirsk and Yekaterinburg to Punta Cana and from Novosibirsk to La Romana.
Key partners of tour operators have received a number of permits for regular flights to Bulgaria and Greece. So, “North Wind” can now deliver flights to Burgas from Perm, Orenburg, Krasnoyarsk, Ufa, Anapa, Novokuznetsk, Khabarovsk, Vladikavkaz, Grozny, Kemerovo, and Tomsk. Ural Airlines is preparing to fly from Zhukovsky, Kazan and Nizhny Novgorod to Varna. Flights to Rhodes may appear from Samara, Krasnodar and Minvod, Kazan, Novosibirsk, Rostov, Krasnoyarsk and Ufa. To Heraklion – from Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, Tyumen, Perm, Nizhny Novgorod, Omsk and Chelyabinsk, to Thessaloniki – from Sochi and Samara, and to Kos from Yekaterinburg.
The admissions for flights to Western European resorts have also been replenished. Siberia Airlines, Royal Flight and Aeroflot can fly to Barcelona (Spain) from Nizhny Novgorod, Perm, Samara, Krasnodar, Kazan, Ufa, Saratov, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Tyumen and Rostov-on-Don. Azur air and Royal flight have divided flights to Malta: both companies will be able to fly there from Yekaterinburg, St. Petersburg, Samara and Kazan. And Azur air is also from Krasnoyarsk, Ufa, Rostov, Krasnodar, and Novosibirsk. Carriers are also interested in Portugal – Azur air is ready to fly to Lisbon from Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Krasnodar, Rostov-on-Don, Samara, Ufa, Novosibirsk and Krasnoyarsk. Royal flight – to Faro from St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Kazan and Samara.
Red wings (from St. Petersburg to Tunisia and Djerba, from Kazan, Krasnodar and Rostov to Djerba) and North Wind (from Moscow to Monastir and Djerba) claim to expand flights to Tunisia. Azur Air (from Ufa, Kazan, Yekaterinburg, Grozny, Minvod and Makhachkala to Jeddah) and Siberia (from Moscow to Jeddah, Dammam and Riyadh) are targeting Saudi Arabia.
Note that while official communication with most of these countries has not been renewed, so these tolerances can only be considered as a reserve for the future. Some of the listed destinations accept tourists, but until the official permission for flights there, only cargo-passenger flights are possible. We will remind, today Rosaviatsia again threatened to take measures against those carriers that transport tourists on them, and also recommended that Rosturizm do the same in relation to tour operators who sell tours with such transportation.
Only important. For the pros only.
