Moscow, 27 Januaray 2016. — Aeroflot today announces that it has reduced fares by 10% for flights from Russian cities to international destinations on all Aeroflot Group airlines.
Effective as of January 26, the new tariffs cover fares denominated in euros for flights (both one-way and return) operated by Aeroflot — Russian Airlines and other airlines under Aeroflot’s commercial management originating from inside Russia to destinations outside the country.
All of Aeroflot’s international tariffs are included except for Promo fares, a number of flights to CIS destinations and routes operated by Aeroflot’s subsidiary Aurora. Substantial reductions on these routes were announced in December 2015. Also excluded are connecting flights with transfers at international airports and flights operated by partner airlines.
The tariff reduction is part of Aeroflot Group’s strategy to increase the accessibility of air travel for people across Russia, and is designed to offset the increase in the cost of international flights for citizens of Russia as a result of the higher cost of foreign currencies.
Aeroflot in December announced a reduction of 10% in ruble-denominated fares for domestic flights through the end of the winter season.
More information is available on Aeroflot’s website, from the airline’s sales offices and 24-hour information Call-centre: 8-800-444-5555 (toll free inside Russia), or at travel agents.
