Dublin's Newest Daily "Direct Route Will Be Very Popular In Both Directions"
It's a "popular tourist destination" and the announcement comes after tens of thousands demanded it.
This starts at the end of the month and it's expected to be "extremely popular in both directions".
But, it's going to be a seasonal service, so don't expect to use this in the summertime.
Dublin Airport has announced a new daily service to Moscow which will run from 28th October 2018 until 30th March 2019.
Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison said:
“We are delighted to welcome Aeroflot back to Dublin Airport with this direct connection to Moscow. The new service will further boost trade and tourism between Ireland and Russia.”
He said that “about 42,000 passengers travelled between Dublin and Moscow last year on indirect flights so I have no doubt this new direct route will very popular in both directions.”
Vitaly Saveliev, Chief Executive of Aeroflot, added that:
“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.”
