Aeroflot started a new daily Boeing 737-800 Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport to Dubai World Central route yesterday (28 October).
The service is the airline’s second destination in the United Arab Emirates and it will operate from 28 October 2018 through 30 March 2019.
Aeroflot chief executive officer (CEO), Vitaly Saveliev 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.”
Aeroflot will continue to operate services from Moscow to Dubai International Airport bringing the total number of flights per week on Moscow-Dubai routes to 28.
Dubai Airports CEO, Paul Griffiths said: “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.”
