Russian airline Aeroflot is waiting for permission to export its citizens from male and new York on April 7. This is stated in a message published on Monday, April 6, on the airline’s website.
On Tuesday, the company will take the Russians out of Bangkok. The plane operating a special flight SU273 “Bangkok-Sheremetyevo” will take off at 12: 00 local time and land at 18: 15 in Moscow. Flight SU271 will leave Bangkok at 10: 00 and arrive in Saint Petersburg at 17: 00, and in Moscow at 19: 20 local time.
“Aeroflot is waiting for permission to operate flights from new York and male on April 7 and 8,” the company said.
On April 3, Aeroflot’s special flight SU 2583 took 150 Russian citizens home from the UK.
Since April 6, Russia has resumed flights for the return of its citizens from foreign countries. The Russians returned to Yekaterinburg from Bishkek, and to Nizhny Novgorod from Dhaka.
Earlier in March, due to restrictive measures imposed by countries against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic, many tourists from Russia were blocked in other countries and could not return home.
A working group was formed with the participation of the Federal air transport Agency, the Federal tourism Agency, the foreign Ministry and other agencies to export them.
The government approved the procedure for providing assistance to Russians stranded abroad on April 4. Citizens are recommended to fill out a form on the portal of public services. The application is reviewed within 24 hours. If approved, the assistance will be credited to the applicant’s account within 24 hours, and information about the date of the export flight will be sent later.
Russians will be able to return from abroad to the capital only through Sheremetyevo and only in the total number of no more than 500 people. From 20 to 30 March, more than 155 thousand citizens have already been returned to Russia.
An outbreak of COVID-19, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, occurred in Wuhan, China, in late December. On March 11, the world health organization declared a pandemic of the disease.
