Aeroflot will resume regular flights from Moscow to the capital of South Korea – Seoul from October 1, the airline said.
The flights will be operated once a week on Thursdays (flight SU0250 Moscow – Seoul). Return flight SU0251 Seoul – Moscow will be operated on Saturdays.
When entering South Korea, passengers will have to undergo a medical examination no more than 48 hours before departure. Moreover, after arrival, the coronavirus test will need to be passed at the airport and, regardless of its results, travelers will have to quarantine for 14 days. After returning from abroad to Moscow, Russians will have to take a coronavirus test within three days and post the results on the public services portal.
With the restoration of international air traffic, the frequency of flights may change, Aeroflot noted.
Earlier, Aeroflot Airlines started international flights to the Czech capital from October 1. “The Russian passenger air carrier Aeroflot resumed regular flights from Moscow to Prague from October 1. The flights are operated 2 times a week - on Thursdays and Saturdays,” said a source in the airline.
According to the expert, the next countries with which air traffic will be resumed, most likely, will be Armenia, as well as representatives of the Caribbean region - Cuba, Mexico and, possibly, the Dominican Republic. Negotiations with them have a better chance for success than with the countries of Europe and Southeast Asia.
In early September, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree on the resumption of international air traffic with Egypt, the UAE, and the Maldives. Prior to that, Russia resumed flights with Turkey, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, and Tanzania.
