A wet day but a warm welcome in Batumi, Georgia, for Ural Airlines’ first flight from Ekaterinburg on 20 April. The 2,169-kilometre sector will be flown twice-weekly.
- Ural Airlines started operations on six new routes over the past two weeks, spread across three of its Russian bases. The longest sector of the six services was on the airport pair from Moscow Domodedovo (DME) to Lisbon (LIS), at 3,911 kilometres, while the shortest was the 2,116-kilometre link from St. Petersburg (LED) to Rimini (RMI) in Italy. The average weekly frequency of the six new routes is 1.67. Four of the six routes are already served from some of the airline’s other Russian bases – Batumi and Barcelona are both served from Moscow Domodedovo; Larnaca is served from Krasnodar, Ekaterinburg and Moscow Domodedovo; Rimini is served from Krasnodar, Samara and Moscow Domodedovo. However, flights to both Kemerovo and Lisbon are the airline’s first operations to the respective cities. See how Lisbon Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
