Aeroflot to Begin Flights to Bishkek

Tuesday 22 September 2020

MOSCOW (TASS) — Russia’s flagship air carrier Aeroflot will resume flights from Moscow to the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek on September 24, the company said in a statement.

Earlier, the Russian anti-coronavirus crisis centre made the decision to resume passenger air service with Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and South Korea. After that, the Russian government announced it would lift the entry ban for these country’s nationals on a reciprocal basis.

Flights to these countries will be performed once a week. Air service with Kazakhstan (Nur-Sultan), with Kyrgyzstan (Bishkek), and with Belarus (Minsk) will be resumed from September 21. Flights to the capital of Kazakhstan will be launched on September 27. Flights SU1956 Moscow-Nur-Sulan and SU1957 Nur-Sultan-Moscow will be carried out once a week on Sundays.

Russia suspended regular air service with foreign countries in late March in a bid to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus infection. It was allowed to perform only the so-called repatriation flights to take Russian nationals from foreign countries. Air service with the United Kingdom, Tanzania, and Turkey was resumed from August 1. Flights between Russia and Switzerland were resumed on August 15.
