Pictured at Volgograd this week was Pobeda’s inaugural daily service from Moscow Vnukovo. By the end of December the LCC will have launched seven domestic routes in Russia.
- Pobeda, which means ‘Victory’, is the new name for Aeroflot’s LCC, which has started flights from Moscow Vnukovo (VKO), rather than from Moscow Sheremetyevo, where its predecessor Dobrolet operated from for around two months before EU sanctions forced its temporary suspension of services in August. The airline began daily flights to Volgograd (VOG) with its 189-seat 737-800s on 1 December and will face competition from UTair’s daily services on the airport pair.
