MOSCOW – In response to the questions concerning the Blagoveshchensk – Moscow air services, Transaero Airlines would like to inform about the following.
Aeroflot, which operates flights between Moscow and Blagoveshchensk along with Transaero Airlines, has made a decision to stop services on this route from May 15, 2015. The airline requested Transaero Airlines to carry passengers of its cancelled flights within the acting agreements between the companies. More than 10,500 tickets have been purchased on the flights, which were cancelled and had to be operated through to October 26, 2015.
With a view of the best interests of residents of Russia’s Amur region, Transaero Airlines has agreed to fulfil the request and carry all passengers wishing to take advantage of this agreement. Passengers will not have to pay any fees. The airlines will settle all payments between themselves.
Passengers should contact the agency or a sales office where they have bought their tickets to get new itineraries.
Currently, Transaero Airlines operates flights between Moscow and Blagoveshchensk five times per week from Moscow Domodedovo airport.
Starting from May 26, 2015 Transaero will carry out daily flights UN195/196 according to the following schedule (local time):
- Departure from Moscow at 18.30, arriving in Blagoveshchensk at 08.00 the next day.
- Departure from Blagoveshchensk at 10.30, arriving in Moscow (Domodedovo airport) at 12.40.
Moreover, Transaero plans to launch additional flights UN193/194 from June 22, 2015. The flights will depart on Mondays and Fridays from Moscow Vnukovo airport and on Tuesdays and Saturdays from Blagoveshchensk airport. The timetable of the extra services will be as follows:
Departure from Moscow at 16.00, arriving in Blagoveshchensk at 05.30 the next day. Departure from Blagoveshchensk at 08.00, arriving in Moscow at 09.50.
With a view to meet fully the passenger demand, Transaero Airlines will increase its passenger capacity on the Moscow-Blagoveshchensk route by 20%. The airline’s fleet provides for this flexible adjustment. The airline will use for these services Boeing 767 widebody aircraft with the seating capacity of up to 275 seats.
