Pobeda puts four more domestic destinations on the map
A chilly apron at Chelyabinsk welcomed passengers on 27 December for the launch of Pobeda’s inaugural daily flights from Moscow Vnukovo. Aeroflot’s in-house LCC also commenced services to Ekaterinburg, Surgut and Vladikavkaz over the Christmas period.
- Pobeda added four domestic routes over three days, as Aeroflot’s in-house LCC seemingly targets routes operated by the financially weakened UTair. The longest of the four new sectors was the daily route between its Moscow Vnukovo (VKO) base and Surgut (SGC) – at 2,165 kilometres. At 1,455 kilometres, the shortest city pair commenced was the daily connection to Ekaterinburg (SVX), also flown by the airline’s 189-seat 737-800 fleet.

Pobeda has announced that it won’t serve Chelyabinsk and Samara after January 14. Passengers will be given the option to rebook on OrenAir (Aeroflot Group) that flies from the same Vnukovo airport in Moscow (but earlier in the day).
It was smart for Aeroflot’s in-house LCC to target routes operated by the financially weakened UTair. Good luck Pobeda!
