International flights from the Moscow’s new Zhukovsky airport to Europe and Asia will be launched in March–May, 2017, reports Izvestia daily citing Yevgeny Solodilin, deputy CEO of Ramport Aero international aviation holding company, which develops the airport.
Initially, the destinations will include Baku, Tel Aviv, and Istanbul.
“Now, we will fly not only to CIS countries, but also to Europe and Asia. In January-February we will gather all the information and starting from March will enter a more serious level. Prior to that we will gradually add [new] destinations – Baku, Tel Aviv, Istanbul. I think flights to Antalya will start in April-May,” Mr Solodilin told Izvestia on Friday.
Zhukovsky is a new airport located about 23 kilometers from the city of Moscow. It was officially unveiled on May 30, 2016.
On Thursday, Russia’s Transport Ministry said Russia would suspend flights of Tajikistan’s Somon Air company to the Russian regions in response to the failure by Tajik authorities to coordinate the flights of Russia’s Yamal air carrier from the Zhukovsky airport to Tajikistan, reports Sputniknews.
