From now on, Russians can again fly to Iceland, Malta, Mexico, Portugal and Saudi Arabia.

Flights to these countries have been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, from Tuesday, May 25, three flights a week will be carried out from the Russian capital to Jeddah, Cancun and Lisbon. The liners will fly from Moscow to Reykjavik and Valletta twice a week.

In addition, it will be possible to fly to Jeddah from Grozny and Makhachkala - one flight per week will operate on this route.

Note that the Russian Federation has increased the number of regular flights with South Korea, Finland and Japan.

Speaking about the regions, we note that it will be possible to fly abroad again from the international airports of Omsk, Syktyvkar, Chelyabinsk, Magnitogorsk and Ulan-Ude.

It's worth reminding that flights - regular and charter - have been suspended by Russia with other countries since March 27, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As an exception, export flights were carried out, and cargo, postal, ambulance planes, as well as some other flights, continued to fly. Flights are resumed gradually from August.

To date, you can again fly from Russia to 27 countries. Despite the fact that flights to the UK, Tanzania and Turkey were reopened, flights to the first two countries still had to be suspended, and in the third - to be limited , due to the growing risk of the spread of coronavirus infection.
