Ural Airlines adds another Harbin service

Ural Airlines

A warm welcome in a chilly-looking Harbin. Ural Airlines began weekly services from the Chinese city to Chita in Russia on 26 December.

  • Ural Airlines started two new services over the festive season, linking Russia with China and Austria. On 26 December, the Russian airline, now the country’s third largest in terms of weekly ASKs (according to OAG Schedules Analyser) behind Aeroflot and S7 Airlines, started weekly (Saturdays) flights from Harbin (HRB) in China to Chita (HTA) in Russia. As the route originates in the Chinese city, presumably it utilises an aircraft from one of its other services operated into Harbin – namely Krasnoyarsk, Novosibirsk, Bangkok Suvarnabhumi, Ekaterinburg or Irkutsk. The 1,181-kilometre service is flown by the airline’s 156-seat A320 fleet. On 3 January, Ural began weekly (Sundays) flights from Moscow Domodedovo (DME) to Belgrade (BEG). Flown by its 220-seat A321s, the route will increase to twice-weekly from 20 January with the addition of a Wednesday rotation. Neither routes faces any direct competition.
