Russia will resume flights with Vietnam, India, Qatar and Finland since January 27, the operational headquarters for the fight against coronavirus said.
The decision was made following a meeting of the operational headquarters to prevent the import and spread of coronavirus.
Regular flights to Helsinki (Finland) will be carried out twice a week from Moscow and St. Petersburg. Flights to Qatar on the Moscow-Doha route will be operated three times a week, flights to Vietnam (Moscow-Hanoi) and India (Moscow-Delhi) – twice a week.
Russia cut off regular flights to other countries during the first wave of coronavirus spread in 2020. Later, air traffic with Egypt, Turkey, Great Britain, Abkhazia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Cuba, Maldives, United Arab Emirates, Serbia, Tanzania, Ethiopia and South Korea was resumed.
Air traffic with the UK was suspended on December 21 due to the detection of the “British” strain of coronavirus, which is spreading faster than others. In January, the suspension was extended to February 1.
