From June 20 to October 26, 2019, Hefei Airport will add a non-stop flight to Moscow.
The flight is operated by a Russian airline and will fly once a week on Thursdays. The 7.5 hours flight takes-off from Hefei at 14:00 and leaves Moscow at 04:00 (BEIJING time ) .
At present, Ural Airlines operates a weekly flight from Hefei to New Siberia to Moscow on Fridays , the first of which was Airbus 320 on December 7, 2018. Since then, the occupancy rate has been maintained at above 95%, and the market demand is strong. According to the head of a travel agency in Anhui, the best time to travel to Russia is between May and October, when it’s cool and most suitable for summer vacation.
The opening of the new direct flight to Moscow will further strengthen the air access capability of Anhui , promote trade and tourism cooperation with Russia, and enrich the Hefei international airport network.
