Starting from October 28th, Aeroflot will launch regular flights between Moscow Sheremetyevo and Dubai World Central, the airline’s second destination in the United Arab Emirates.
Flight SU522, flown by a Boeing 737-800, will depart Moscow Sheremetyevo at 22:10 and arrive in Dubai World Central at 03:30.
The return flight, SU523, will depart Dubai World Central at 05:00 and arrive at Sheremetyevo at 10:40.
Flights will operate under the winter timetable until March 30th.
Vitaly Saveliev, chief executive of Aeroflot, said: “Today Aeroflot ranks as a leading global carrier and we continue to expand our international route network and offer new convenient connections for our transit passengers.
“This winter we are pleased to offer travellers new international destinations as well as additional flights on select popular routes, thus expanding travel options with Aeroflot for both business and leisure travellers.”
Dubai is the largest and most populous of the seven emirates that make up the UAE.
“We are very pleased to welcome Aeroflot to the growing list of international airlines at Dubai World Central.
“As an airport that offers a fast, friendly and convenient customer experience, DWC is emerging as an airport of choice, particularly for point to point routes.
“Aeroflot’s addition will further boost that popularity by expanding the airport’s connectivity.
“Considering that Russia is among the fastest growing destination countries for Dubai, the launch of Aeroflot’s services to DWC couldn’t have been more timely,” said Paul Griffiths, chief executive of Dubai Airports.
Flights to and from DWC, which is easily accessible from the most popular resorts and busiest commercial centres of the city, give passengers additional options for getting in and out of Dubai.
Russia’s flag carrier this winter will continue to operate services from Moscow to Dubai International, bringing the total number of flights per week on Moscow-Dubai routes to 28.
