Singapore Airlines will not fly to Moscow till year-end
Singapore Airlines will resume and increase the frequency of flights on a number of destinations by the end of the year. However, flights to Moscow will not be restored yet, according to the air carrier’s time table published on Sunday evening. The direct flights to Moscow, which operated five times a week, were suspended by the company starting March 23, 2020.
On this background Russia and Iran held talks on resumption of flights between the two countries and expansion of air travel after quarantine restrictions are eased, the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency said in a press release on Saturday.
At the Russian Deputy Transport Ministry, Director of the State Civil Aviation Authority Alexander Neradko held a working meeting with Iran’s Ambassador to Russia Kazem Jalali.
The press release says that Neradko and Jalali touched on the steps their counties take to gradually loosen epidemiological restrictions while restarting passenger air travel.
