Aeroflot used to operate a flight from Mumbai to Moscow back in the day. Now, Ural Airlines are starting a nonstop flight on Mumbai to Moscow route. The flight is a seasonal one, which will be operational in the summer schedule, starting on March 31, 2019.
Ural Airlines is a Russian full-service carrier with a fleet of 46 Airbus A320 family aircraft. It flies to 101 destinations mostly in Europe. They also fly to China and Thailand in Asia. Ural Airlines is a 3-Star Skytrax airline. They offer a Business class on their Airbus A319 and A320 aircraft. Their Airbus A321 features an all Economy layout.
An Airbus A321 will operate on Mumbai to Moscow route. The Airbus A321 is packed with 220 seats which are the max the aircraft is certified to carry.
The flight will be operated daily with the following schedule,
U6 757 DME20:00–05:35(+1)BOM 321 D
U6 758 BOM06:35–11:35DME 321 D
One way Economy ticket starts at INR 25k and you can book a Premium Economy seat for INR 55k.
If you notice in the calendar above, then on some dates tickets cost INR 65k. Ural Airlines are only selling Premium Economy on those dates. I guess it is a system problem cause when you go on to the seat selection page, they are selling economy seats for that price.
Ural Airlines offers a range of add-ons. The ticket includes a meal but you can add an extra portion if you like.
Mumbai gets a direct flight to the Vodka capital of the world. The flight has convenient timings for tourists. Smart move by Ural Airlines as New Delhi sees 2x daily A330 services on Aeroflot.
