From Monday, June 28, Russia formally resumes flights with the USA, Italy, Belgium, Ireland, Cyprus and North Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Jordan.
Air traffic is suspended in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The corresponding decision was made by the operational headquarters to combat COVID-19. The number of quotas for flights to a number of countries has also been expanded.
Now airlines will be able to resume flights to these countries if they wish. At the moment, they announced their readiness to resume flights only to Italy, Bulgaria, and Cyprus.
Flights from Moscow to Washington and New York have been agreed upon twice a week. Russian and foreign carriers can operate two flights. Flights from Moscow to Brussels have been agreed upon four times a week. Flights are planned from Moscow twice a week: to Dublin, Rome, Milan; four times a week: to Venice, Naples, and Larnaca (four times); and to Paphos three times.
Flights between Russia and Bulgaria have been resumed: Sofia, Varna, and Burgas are open for flights both from Moscow and from the regions.
