Aeroflot now serves Bologna in northern Italy, which becomes the Russian SkyTeam airline’s fourth Italian destination. Bologna and Moscow were last connected by Meridiana fly, which dropped its flights earlier this year.
- Aeroflot expanded its network to Italy on 1 September, following the entry of competitor Transaero in the scheduled market to Italy. The Russian national carrier’s fourth Italian destination after Milan Malpensa, Rome Fiumicino and Venice is Bologna (BLQ) in the northeast of the country, which is analysed in this week’s anna.aero. The new route is operated daily with 140-seat A320s out of the SkyTeam airline’s Moscow Sheremetyevo (SVO) hub. The Russian capital was last served from Bologna by Meridiana fly, which dropped its low-frequency route to Moscow Domodedovo in January this year.
