Another Russian airline has started selling air tickets to Turkey
Aeroflot's subsidiary, low-cost airline Pobeda, following the parent company, began selling air tickets to Turkey, presenting the largest range of flights to this country. The flights will start from the beginning of August from Moscow. The flights from St. Petersburg and Yekaterinburg with change in Moscow are also offered. Pobeda plans to fly to Antalya and Istanbul; the direct flights to Alania from Moscow are also offered.
So, having studied Pobeda website, the experts found out the carrier's appetites for the Turkish destination:
- tickets for the flight Moscow - Alania start from 190 Euros from August 1; since August 10 the tickets will fall in price to 101 Euros.
- tickets for the flight to Antalya on August 1 cost from 249 Euros one way.
- tickets for the flights to Istanbul are cheaper – on August 1 the price is 129 Euros one way.
It should be noted that another Aeroflot subsidiary Rossiya Airlines offers flights from St. Petersburg to Antalya. In this case, to buy tickets, the system sends the user to the Aeroflot website.
S7 and Ural Airlines have not yet announced flights to Turkey - there are no such flights on their websites. This indirectly confirms the assumption that the authorities will open air traffic with Turkey from August only for regular flights.
But limiting charters will lead to high prices, no doubt about that. So, the appetites of the Turkish national carrier turned out to be significantly higher than Aeroflot – 858 Euros one way.
