Aeroflot Airlines will resume flights to Geneva, Switzerland, from August 15. Earlier, the Russian government made a decision on the possibility of resuming flights with the country.
“Flights will be operated from August 15 under a reduced program (one flight per week on Saturdays). As international air traffic is restored, the frequency of flights may change,” the company noted.
Earlier, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed an order to lift restrictions on entry to Russia for Swiss citizens. People arriving in Switzerland from Russia will be required to undergo a 10-day quarantine.
Earlier, Russia opened air connections with the United Kingdom, Turkey, Tanzania, and a land border with Abkhazia.
Also, from September 1, the Russian authorities may approve the launch of international flights from the airports of Yekaterinburg and Kazan. This was told by a source close to the aviation community. According to him, the Ministry of Transport, together with Rospotrebnadzor (Russian Agency for Health and Consumer Rights), should assess the quality of operation of the air harbors of Moscow, St. Petersburg and Rostov-on-Don after the lifting of restrictions on flights.
