OREANDA-NEWS. May 12, 2012. On May 21, 2012, Yamal Airlines will start operating direct scheduled flights from Moscow to Gothenburg from Moscow Domodedovo Airport. The new direction, tickets for which are already on sale, is unique for the Russian air travel market - there is no other airline operating non-stop flights from the airports of the Moscow Aviation Hub between the capital of Russia and the second largest economic and tourist center in Sweden. Its proximity to Norway and Denmark is making Gothenburg a tempting starting point for the trip through Scandinavia.

The new flight will be carried out three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on the following schedule:

Passengers from the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District, as well as from other cities covered by the geography of flights of Yamal Airlines, will be able to travel to Scandinavia with the optimal time connections at Domodedovo airport for transfer fares.
