Parked up outside the Belgorod terminal is the inaugural Transaero Airlines flight from Moscow Domodedovo. This start of the route, which began on 29 April, marks the first time the carrier has served the city.
- Transaero Airlines, which is headquartered in St Petersburg, began flights from two different airports in Moscow this week. Started on 29 April, was a new domestic connection from Moscow Domodedovo (DME) to Belgorod (EGO). The four times weekly, 737-500-operated service represents the first time that the carrier has served the Russian city, which sits just 40 kilometres from the Ukrainian border. Competition on the 536-kilometre sector comes in the form of RusLine, which operates the airport pair 35 times weekly. There is also indirect competition on the city pair, as both Pobeda (daily) and UTair (six times weekly) fly from Moscow Vnukovo to Belgorod. Transaero has also commenced twice-weekly operations from Moscow Vnukovo (VKO) to Enfidha (NBE) in Tunisia. Equipment on the route, which started on 30 April, will vary. There is no direct competition on the city pair.
