Pobeda Moscow Vnukovo to Cologne Bonn
Ribbon-cutting and cake-cutting was the order of the day at Cologne Bonn Airport on Monday 15 February to celebrate the arrival of Pobeda’s inaugural flight from Moscow Vnukovo. Armed with scissors were: Ulrich Stiller, Director Marketing & Sales, Cologne Bonn Airport; Michael Garvens, Chairman of the Management Board, Cologne Bonn Airport; Andrey Kalmykov, CEO, Pobeda Airlines; and Vladimir V. Sedykh, Consul General of the Russian Federation in Bonn.
- Pobeda started its third international route on 15 February with daily services from Moscow Vnukovo (VKO) launched to Cologne Bonn (CGN). The 737-800-operated sector joins the Russian LCC’s existing overseas sectors to Milan/Bergamo and Bratislava, which both launched in December. The 2,054-kilometre route will face no direct competition on the airport pair, although Germanwings/Eurowings intends to launch services from the German airport to Moscow Domodedovo in June, having served Vnukovo in the past.
