Pobeda pushes up international presence

Pobeda St. Petersburg to Cologne Bonn 

Pobeda commenced services from St. Petersburg to Cologne Bonn on 17 February. Cutting the celebratory cake were: Anna Nikiforova, Head of Aviation Marketing and Sales at the Russian airport and Dmitry Sukolenko, Head of Ground Handling at the LCC. The German city becomes the first international destination in Pobeda’s route network from St. Petersburg.

  • Pobeda, the Russian low-cost airline, used the last seven days to launch four new routes, two from its main Moscow Vnukovo (VKO) base, and two from St. Petersburg (LED), its second biggest operation in terms of weekly seats. The average sector length of the four new city pairs is 1,607 kilometres, with the longest being the 2,235-kilometre route from St. Petersburg to Pisa (PSA), while the shortest service is the 715-kilometre domestic airport pair from Vnukovo to Ulyanovsk (ULV). In 2018, Pobeda will continue to expand the geography of its flights from St. Petersburg. In S18 the airline will start flights to Gyumri (Armenia), Girona (Spain), Tbilisi (Georgia), as well to the Russian cities of Kaliningrad, Nizhnekamsk, and Ulyanovsk. See how this route’s FTWA compares to other from around the world.
