Dubai World Central (DWC) another new destination from Moscow for Aeroflot Russian Airlines

Forming a cornerstone of its new winter schedule, Aeroflot, Russia's leading airline has started a new scheduled flight between its Moscow Sheremetyevo hub and Dubai World Central (DWC), which will be the airline’s second destination in the United Arab Emirates. 

Aeroflot has scheduled the daily flights to be operated by Boeing 737-800 aircraft, leaving Moscow at 2210 with an arrival time of 0330. The return flight leaves DWC at 0500 and arrive at Sheremetyevo at 10:40.

Vitaly Saveliev, CEO of Aeroflot, said: “Today Aeroflot ranks as a leading global carrier and we continue to expand our international route network and offer new convenient connections for our transit passengers. This winter we are pleased to offer travellers new international destinations as well as additional flights on select popular routes, thus expanding travel options with Aeroflot for both business and leisure travellers.”

“We are very pleased to welcome Aeroflot to the growing list of international airlines at Dubai World Central. As an airport that offers a fast, friendly and convenient customer experience, DWC is emerging as an airport of choice, particularly for point to point routes. Aeroflot’s addition will further boost that popularity by expanding the airport’s connectivity. Considering that Russia is among the fastest growing destination countries for Dubai, the launch of Aeroflot’s services to DWC couldn’t have been more timely,” said Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports.

Flights to and from DWC, which is easily accessible from the most popular resorts and busiest commercial centres of the city, give passengers additional options for getting in and out of Dubai. Russia’s flag carrier this winter will continue to operate services from Moscow to Dubai International (DXB), bringing the total number of flights per week on Moscow-Dubai routes to 28. 

In recent years, Aeroflot has established a reputation as a top choice for transit passengers, offering customers convenient connections through the company’s Moscow hub. Moscow’s geographical location and the seamless connectivity via its modern facilities at Sheremetyevo Airport mean that journeys between different continents can be two hours or even shorter than through other major hubs. At the same time, Aeroflot offers its passengers top-class service and some of the most affordable fares globally.
