“We are delighted to welcome Aeroflot back to Dublin Airport and we will work closely with its management team to promote this new route,” said Vincent Harrison, Managing Director, Dublin Airport. “About 42,000 passengers travelled between Dublin and Moscow last year on indirect flights so I have no doubt that this new direct route will be very popular in both directions. The new service will further boost trade and tourism between Ireland and Russia.”
Flights will depart Moscow Sheremetyevo at 19.20 and arrive in Dublin at 20.45. The return flight will depart Dublin at 21.45 and arrive in Moscow Sheremetyevo at 05.00.
Aeroflot previously operated a Dublin to Moscow service between 1987 and 2003. The airline is Russia’s flagship carrier serving 146 destinations in 52 countries.
