Air Manas now serves two Moscow airports from Bishkek


On 20 December Air Manas began twice-weekly flights between Bishkek and Moscow Zhukovsky. On hand to cut the route launch cake were Talgat Nurbaev, General Director of Air Manas and Tomas Vaisvila, CEO of Ramport Aero.

  • Air Manas has begun twice-weekly flights between Bishkek (FRU) and Moscow Zhukovsky (ZIA). The 2,929-kilometre route will be flown on Tuesdays and Fridays using the carrier’s 737-800s. The inaugural service to Russia on 20 December was reported to have a 97% load factor. Competition on the route comes from Ural Airlines and Yamal Airlines who also both operate twice-weekly flights between the two airports. Air Manas was formerly known as Pegasus Asia. The Turkish carrier is still a 49% shareholder in the airline which is based at Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. The carrier already serves Moscow Domodedovo with daily flights according to OAG Schedules Analyser data. Air Manas’ other international routes are to Delhi (India), Kashi (China) and Urumqi (China), while it also flies domestically to Osh.
