This coming Sunday, October 31, marks the start of the winter flight schedules at Kurumoch Airport. The timetable for the new season gives an overview of new and additional services from Samara and is effective up to March 27, 2011.
The highest frequency of flights will still remain on the route between Samara and Moscow. In the coming winter timetable, scheduled flights between Samara and the Russian capital will be operated by Aeroflot – Russian Airlines, UTair, Transaero, S7 Airlines, Avianova, and Gazpromavia. Starting November 2010, this route will also be served by RusLine. Travellers will therefore be offered up to 18 daily flights from Samara to Moscow during the 2010-2011 winter season. With such a high flight frequency on this route, passengers can still choose a flight convenient to the time they want to depart, but also plan their onward travel from Moscow airports.
The frequency on another popular route increases this winter. Transaero will operate three flights a week to Saint Petersburg. The flight frequency between Samara and the Northern Capital of Russia will therefore make a total of ten scheduled flights per week (daily services on this route are presently offered by STC Rossiya).
New destinations this winter are Rostov-on-Don (served by Donavia), Osh (the weekly service to the second largest city of Kyrgyzstan is offered by Ural Airlines together with Bishkek-based Avia Traffic Company), and Volgograd. This winter RusLine will serve this destination on the Volga river twice a week, but also start scheduled flights from Samara to Yekaterinburg, Irkutsk, Krasnodar, Nizhnevartovsk, and Novosibirsk.
A newcomer in Samara is Dubai-based low-cost carrier flydubai, which has been flying twice a week to Dubai since October 20, 2010. For vacationers travelling from Samara, Dubai is not only a premier destination in itself, but also a hub for onward travel to the cities and destinations in Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Greece and other countries added to the Airline’s network. Launched with the support of Emirates Airlines, the largest carrier in the Middle East, flydubai now provides passengers departing from Samara through connections to a number of Emirates destinations all over the world. Flydubai is now flying to Dubai twice a week. This route is also served once-weekly from Kurumoch by Ural Airlines.
Apart from regular international flights, there will be charter flights for tourists this coming winter. The charter flight schedules will include such popular winter sun destinations as Sharm-el-Sheikh, Hurghada, and Goa. One of the highlights of the winter 2010/2011 timetable is the new flight to Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, which will be served by Nord Wind and Transaero.
