Pobeda airline will reduce flights to Italy until May due to falling demand
Pobeda Airlines (part of the Aeroflot Group) will reduce the frequency of flights to Italy until May 2020 due to falling demand in this area.
The adjustment will affect all Italian carrier routes from Moscow: to Bergamo, Rome, Rimini, Pisa and Treviso.
“In March, the scheduled flights from Moscow to Bergamo will be carried out only on Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays; to Treviso and Rimini on Saturdays; to Rome - on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; to Pisa - on Sundays. Correction of the schedule for April is being specified," the company said.
In general, the frequency of Pobeda flights to Italy in March-April 2020 will be reduced by 39%.
“We have tangibly adjusted the program of flights to Italy, only flights with very high loading are retained in the schedule. We are very closely monitoring the situation and waiting for the recommendations of the aviation authorities,” said Pobeda CEO Andrei Kalmykov.
“In connection with the coronavirus epidemic in Italy, the Aeroflot group is thinking about reducing the volume of transportation to this country. As for Italy, we are noting a decrease of boards loading. This situation is pushing us to think about reducing transportation volumes,” said Ivan Batanov, the representative of the company.
Aeroflot’s flight map to Italy consists of flights from Moscow to Rome, Bologna, Milan, Naples, Venice and Verona.
