Gatwick Airport is to welcome a brand new daily service to Moscow, from airline Aeroflot, starting November 15th, 2016.
Aeroflot, the national flag carrier of Russia, is one of the world’s oldest airlines tracing its history back to 1923 and now flying to 131 destinations in 50 countries.
The new route is in response to Russia growing in importance as a tourist destination, home to renowned architectural wonders including Saint Basil’s Cathedral.
From historical architectural wonders to more modern creations, Moscow also has the accolade of being home to the highest skyscraper in Europe, the Federation Tower, within the Moscow International Business Centre, completed just this year.
Gatwick Airport chief commercial officer Guy Stephenson said: “Moscow is a fantastic new addition to Gatwick’s route network joining an impressive line-up of new destinations from Gatwick, including China, Peru, Canada, Costa Rica, Nigeria, South Africa and the United States.
“We’re delighted to be providing this new daily connection to Russia for both our business and leisure passengers – starting in just over six weeks.”
