- Aeroflot resumed services to Ho Chi Minh City (SGN) on 30 October, making it the second Vietnamese route the Russian SkyTeam airline operates from its Moscow Sheremetyevo (SVO) hub after flights to Hanoi. Flights on the new route are operated twice-weekly with 218-seat 767-300ER aircraft. The last time Aeroflot operated the route, which connects with the second of its alliance partner Vietnam Airlines’ hubs, was in 2003. Indirect competition comes from Vietnam Airlines, which notably serves Moscow Domodedovo four times weekly. Last winter, the route was also served by Transaero.
