flights to Russia. We are talking about the Turkish carrier Pegasus, which announced the resumption of flights and launched the sale of tickets from Moscow and St. Petersburg to Turkey. Regional flights are also promised in the future.
According to information on the carrier's website, flights from Moscow to Istanbul and Antalya, as well as from St. Petersburg to Istanbul, are planned to be resumed from April 11-12. And only from Moscow, from Domodedovo airport, flights will be carried out daily, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays two direct flights are announced. Four flights a week are promised from St. Petersburg on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
At the same time, the aircraft are also named “imported” – Airbus A320 and Boeing 737-800. Probably, the carrier was able to find aircraft that did not fall into the “sanction risks”. Recall that Pegasus Airlines was one of the first airlines to suspend all flights to/from Russia from March 13 to March 27, 2022. The cessation of flights was due to the Turkish side’s fear of imposing sanctions on itself: “In accordance with European Union regulation 2022/328, for aircraft arriving and departing from the Russian Federation, sanctions and prohibitions are imposed on insurance/reinsurance, leasing, operation and technical service. Due to the current risks arising from the current situation, all our flights arriving and departing from the Russian Federation are temporarily suspended from March 13, 2022 (inclusive) until March 27, 2022, ”the carrier said then.
By the way, in May, the Turkish airline also plans to return previously existing regional flights. Namely, flights to Turkey from Krasnodar, Makhachkala and Grozny.
