Starting from January 2015 Aeroflot is launching its own regular flights on the route Moscow — Samarkand — Moscow.
Aeroflot will provide daily flights to Samarkand on comfortable modern Airbus A320 from Sheremetyevo Airport Terminal D in accordance with the following schedule:
SU1874 flight leaves Moscow on Friday at 22:45 and arrives to Samarkand at 04:55;
Return SU1875 flight leaves Samarkand on Saturday at 06:25 and arrives to Moscow at 08:50 (local time).
Samarkand is the second largest city in Uzbekistan and one of the oldest in the world. The city is a vital tourist center and the largest historical landmark full of ancient traditions. Since 2001 Samarkand has been added to the World Heritage List.
The launch of this new destination fully corresponds with Aeroflot strategy considering the development of transport across CIS countries as one of the priorities. Thus the Carrier contributes to the integration processes between Russia and these countries.
Within the Strategy Aeroflot launched flights to Georgia (Tbilisi) and Moldova (Chisinau) in October.
Earlier in March the Carrier has resumed flights to Kazakhstan (Karaganda), eliminating elements of monopoly in the air transportation system to this country. Aeroflot intends to continue development of these destinations in the Central Asia.
