Siberia Airlines winter timetable — for business and holidays
For the convenience of business passengers, the fourth daily flight between Moscow and Novosibirsk, which was introduced this summer, remains in the timetable. Between Moscow and Rostov-on-Don, there are now three flights a day — a morning, afternoon and evening flight. Between Moscow and Kazan, a second daily flight has been introduced, which will depart in the evening. Flights between Moscow and Frankfurt (Germany) will continue to be daily. Flights between Moscow and Vladikavkaz will also now be daily. In December, flights between Moscow and Volgograd will also become daily. Flights between Moscow and Murmansk have been temporarily suspended, but plans are to reintroduce this route in the first quarter of 2006. It will be a daily flight and will use Boeing 737 aircraft. There will also be a new weekly flight between Moscow and Pavlodar each Saturday.
The network in the Russian Far East will be broadened with the introduction of two new routes: Novosibirsk-Khabarovsk-Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, and Novosibirsk-Vladivostok-Yuzhno Sakhalinsk. For the first time, Boeing 737 aircraft will be used on the Novosibirsk-Irkutsk-Vladivostok route. These aircraft will not only be based out of Moscow this winter, meaning that journeys can be made on Boeings from Novosibirsk to the Russian Far East, St. Petersburg, and cities of the CIS.
New regular flights to China have been introduced — a destination that is becoming more and more attractive both for tourists and for business travelers. Flights to China will leave from all the base airports of Siberia Airlines. A new route between Moscow and Urumqi has been set up, the number of flights between Novosibirsk and China has doubled (there will be four flights a week to Beijing and two flights to Urumqi), and there will be flights from Irkutsk to Beijing and Shenyang (two per week on each route).
Tourist routes are very well represented in the winter timetable. The number of flights to Thailand has been significantly increased. There will be regular flights from Moscow (on a new route to Bangkok), Novosibirsk (to Bangkok and Utapao) and Irkutsk (Utapao).
There are also flights to the ski resorts of Bavaria and the North Caucasus (Munich, Sochi Mineralnye Vody, Vladikavkaz), and to the warm-weather resorts of Egypt, Turkey and the UAE (Sharm-El-Sheikh, Hurghada, Antalya, Dubai). There will be direct flights to these destinations from Moscow and Novosibirsk, and due to convenient connection times, these cities are also accessible to residents of other Russian towns.
Overall, the number of regular Siberia Airlines flights has grown by 20% in comparison with last winter. From Moscow there will be 40 routes, from Novosibirsk 20, and from Irkutsk 6. In total, the winter timetable will have more than 300 regular return flights each week across 70 routes.
