Airlines will be able to operate direct flights to Sochi from August 30

Such a route will reduce travel time by about 30-35 minutes. The decision to “straighten” flights to other cities will be made later.

Since February 24, part of the sky in the south and in the central part of the country has been closed in Russia due to a special military operation in Ukraine.

Flights are temporarily restricted to the airports of Anapa, Belgorod, Bryansk, Voronezh, Gelendzhik, Krasnodar, Kursk, Lipetsk, Rostov-on-Don, Simferopol and Elista.

Sochi Airport did not suspend its activities, but due to the closure of airspace in neighboring regions, travel time increased to four hours.
