For those you not fluent in Russian these adverts from Pobeda’s website tell you that the carrier is launching two more routes this week to Nizhnevartovsk and Sochi/Adler from its Moscow Vnukovo base.
- Pobeda, has started its 12th and 13th domestic destinations from its Moscow Vnukovo (VKO) base this week, beginning operations to Nizhnevartovsk (NJC) and Sochi/Adler (AER). The former route will be flown daily and the airline will face direct competition from UTair (daily) on the 2,330-kilometre sector, whereas the latter route will be flown twice-weekly (Fridays and Sundays) and it will face direct competition from UTair (double-daily) and Transaero Airlines (daily) on the 1,362-kilometre sector. The LCC, which is wholly-owned by Aeroflot, did previously operate to Sochi/Adler for a short period over the late-December to early-January holiday season. Both services are flown by Pobeda’s 189-seat 737-800s, with Sochi/Adler launched on 6 February and Nizhnevartovsk started on 7 February.
