Emirates to start third daily service to Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport
June 08, 2018: Emirates will commence third daily service between Moscow’s Domodedovo (DME) Airport and Dubai from October 25 this year. The route will be operated with Boeing 777-300ER in a three class cabin configuration, with eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie flat seats in Business Class and 310 spacious seats in Economy.
The freight division of Emirates will offer up to 20 tonnes of cargo capacity on the new flight. Cargo carried on the route includes perishables (food products, flowers), pharma, car spare parts for import and food products, aircraft and helicopter spare parts for export.
The Dubai-based airline has been operating flights to the Russian market since July 1, 2003 and already flies twice daily to Domodedovo on Airbus A380 and Boeing 777-300ER and daily to St Petersburg (LED). Demand for travel has grown significantly over recent years, leading to the airline’s launch of this third flight to Moscow.
The new flight allows for seamless connectivity to Moscow from several popular destinations in Emirates’ and flydubai’s combined route network, including Bali, Bangkok, Colombo, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Kathmandu, Kuala Lumpur, Maldives, Mauritius and Singapore.
The new service from Domodedovo airport is also timed to connect conveniently with a wide network of domestic flights operated by Emirates codeshare partner in Russia - S7 Airlines.
Emirates’ commitment to Moscow Domodedovo airport is backed by airport’s investment in improving the infrastructure for the passengers. The new segment of the passenger terminal for international flights is opening in June 2018; multi-level car parking in front of the terminal has just been put in operation adding 1,500 parking spaces and the new runway construction is due to be completed within a few months.
On July 1 this year, Emirates will mark 15 years of operations to Moscow Domodedovo airport.
