On September 18, 2020, a meeting of Russian operational headquarters was held to prevent the import and spread of a new coronavirus infection. The operational headquarters made a decision to resume flights to four new countries in September. One of them is in Europe, the other three are in Asia.
As a result of the meeting, a decision was made to resume international flights from September 21 to Kazakhstan (Nur-Sultan), Kyrgyzstan (Bishkek) and Belarus (Minsk), and from September 27 - to South Korea (Seoul).
The flights to these states will be carried out on a reciprocal basis once a week.
It is necessary for tourists to take into account the likelihood of the introduction of strict quarantine measures in foreign countries and new logistic restrictions, which can cause serious difficulties in returning home in the event of the traffic collapse.
Against this backdrop, due to the coronavirus pandemic, European low-cost carrier Wizz Air corrects its plans on expanding its presence in St. Petersburg. The low-cost airline is postponing the date of opening of the base at Pulkovo international airport and launching of new flights.
Thus, the start of flights (previously announced for the beginning of September) to Salzburg (Austria), Copenhagen (Denmark), Venice, Treviso, Milan, Bergamo (Italy) and Malta is postponed until December 3.
