Russian carrier Aeroflot is introducing new flights on routes from Moscow to Dubai and to the Thai beach resort of Phuket (pictured) in October.
While Dubai is generally an inexpensive direct flight from Europe, few countries outside Asia offer direct flights to Phuket. For Europeans especially, this will should prove a relatively inexpensive way to get to the island (although there are easier ways to get to the Thai capital Bangkok).
- flight SU 0278 departs Sheremetyevo at 06:15, arrives at Phuket at 19:15 (on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays) (local time);
- return flight SU 0279 departs Phuket at 21:00, arrives at Sheremetyevo at 03:10 (on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays) (local time).
During the high season the airline will operate additional flights on this route using a Boeing 777 aircraft.
– flight SU 522 departs Sheremetyevo at 01:10 and arrives in Dubai (Al Maktoum) at 07:30
– flight SU 523 departs Dubai (Al Maktoum) at 09:00 and arrives at Sheremetyevo at 13:40
The new flights will be operated using Boeing 737 aircraft. As well as the additional flights to Al Maktoum airport, Aeroflot operates three scheduled flights a day to Dubai International Airport (DXB).
