In February 2021 Aeroflot Group continued to restore its domestic traffic volumes and partially restore international flights. In addition to flights to Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Maldives, Egypt, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, South Korea, Japan, Serbia and Finland, based on regulatory approval flights to Almaty (Kazakhstan), Baku (Azerbaijan), Yerevan (Armenia), Delhi (India) were added with limited frequency. In March flights to Seychelles were opened. However, in general, international traffic remained significantly limited.

Fleet update

In February 2021 Aeroflot Airlines added one Boeing 777-300ER, phased out two Airbus А320, and transferred five SSJ100s to the fleet of Rossiya Airlines as part of intra-group redistribution. As of 28 February 2021, the fleet of the Aeroflot Group consisted of 339 aircraft.
