The leading Russian airline, Aeroflot has put on sale tickets for the airline's new route from Moscow to Singapore that will start flying on 25th October 2020.

Flights will operate on the following schedule (all times local):

The addition of Moscow-Singapore service to Aeroflot’s route network strengthens the company’s offering on transit routes to Asia from Europe and North America, which forms a key part of the airline’s strategy. The Russian flag carrier offers convenient and fast transfers through its hub at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, with total travel times up to three hours shorter than those of competitors in Europe and Asia.
