Rossiya Airlines consolidates all its Moscow flights at Sheremetyevo
The Aeroflot Group member is transferring its leisure flights programme from Vnukovo, Moscow to its parent’s capital city base
Rossiya Airlines, which is part of the Aeroflot Group, is consolidating all of its Moscow flights at its parent’s Sheremetyevo base airport, having previously run its leisure travel charter programme from Vnukovo in conjunction with large local travel agent Biblio-globus. Starting on April 1, all those aircraft involved in the programme will re-join the rest of the fleet at Sheremetyevo, which has been the airline’s main Moscow base since last year.
Although industry sources indicate that Rossiya’s presence at Vnukovo may have originally been dictated by Biblio-globus, especially since Moscow’s smallest airport offers lower ground handling costs, the ultimate move to Sheremetyevo was regarded as only a question of time.
Rossiya Airlines, which is positioned as a medium-segment carrier within Aeroflot Group and operates a fleet of Boeing 737-800s and B747-400s for its charter programme, is currently Russia’s only Boeing 747 passenger aircraft operator.
