RusLine inaugurates two new routes from Chelyabinsk
RusLine expanded its seasonal summer offering with two new routes from Chelyabinsk (CEK), located on the east side of the Ural foothills. Commencing 9 June, the airline flies to Mineralnye Vody (MRV), the country’s gateway to Caucasian mineral waters. In addition, on the same day, it inaugurated services to Novosibirsk (OVD), the third most populous city in Russia. Both services are operated on a weekly basis using 50-seat CRJ-200s. Competition on the route to Novosibirsk is provided by Ak Bars Aero, which already serves the market with thrice-weekly frequencies.
