Starting June 1, Aeroflot airline launches daily scheduled flights from nine cities in Russia and Sochi, the carrier's press service reported.

Flights to the popular southern resort will be operated from Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Kazan, St. Petersburg, Omsk, Perm, Yekaterinburg, Tyumen and Ufa on medium-haul Airbus A320 aircraft.

“Thanks to the new Aeroflot program, regional passengers will be able to fly to the Black Sea during the peak summer season, bypassing Moscow. Daily non-stop flights and convenient schedules greatly expand the possibilities for planning a vacation and allow travelers to save time and money, ”said the representative of the airline.

Earlier it became known that from May 25, Aeroflot will stop flying on SSJ100 aircraft. From this date, flights on Russian aircraft no longer appear in the airline's schedule. As part of the long-term strategy of the Aeroflot Group, since 2020, the carrier has gradually transferred all Superjets to its subsidiary Rossiya. The process was scheduled to be completed this year.

As of May 1, Aeroflot had seven Superjets left, of which only two flew to Izhevsk and Magnitogorsk. From May 25, these flights on Superjet 100 aircraft will be operated by Rossiya.
