We are pleased to work with the Russian Federal Agency for Tourism and Visit Russia to develop further opportunities for tourism.”

The airline’s comprehensive network in the country includes daily flights to Moscow’s Vnukovo International Airport and flights to a number of Russian regional destinations including Kazan, Mineralnye Vody, Samara and Yekaterinburg.
