Red Wings Airlines expands its domestic network from Moscow Vnukovo
Red Wings Airlines added two routes to the domestic network it offers from Moscow Vnukovo (VKO) on 1 October. Krasnoyarsk (KJA) and Novosibirsk (OVB) are now both served with five weekly frequencies using Tu-204 aircraft in an all-economy 210-seat configuration. Red Wings Airlines, which originated as a charter operator, has actively grown its scheduled network over the past year, and the airline’s Commercial Director, Griegorij Stilbans, said: “Until this year, we had focused on charter operations to Egypt in winter, and Turkey and Europe in summer. Starting this year, we began to develop regular services from Moscow and now serve a total of eight domestic routes, including that to Krasnoyarsk, which is the longest.” Competition on both routes comes from UTair, which serves the two Siberian cities with each twice-daily flights. Weekly frequencies from Moscow Vnukovo to Novosibirsk are additionally offered by Yakutia Airlines.
