Aircraft. Aeroflot resumes international routes

After economic sanctions Russian airline realigns offer and announces return abroad

The economic sanctions imposed by Western countries against Russia, due to the war in Ukraine, have led to the closure of airspace to airlines based in Moscow. For this reason, the air carrier Aeroflot has been forced to reorganize its flight plans on international routes. The top management of the company announced that from April 8 the first flights abroad to friendly countries will start again. 

The company will operate the connections using only Airbus and Boeing aircraft registered in Russia. This choice is dictated by the fear that these aircraft may be seized once they arrive at an airport in a foreign country. In addition, the airline will rely on Russian-made Sukhoi SuperJet 100 short-range aircraft and will operate some connections through its subsidiary Rossiya Airlines.

These aircraft connect the airports of Sochi, Moscow-Sheremetyevo, St. Petersburg and Krasnoyarsk with destinations in Armenia, Egypt, Israel, Kazakhstan, Turkey, Uzbekistan and Sri Lanka.
