Aeroflot airline's schedule now includes flights to Phuket (Thailand) departing at the end of October 2022.
According to the published schedule, regular flights to Phuket will be operated on a daily basis from October 30 on Airbus A330-300. Tickets are not yet available for booking. Aeroflot has not made public statements about relaunching flights to Thailand.
According to Interfax, citing one of the major tour operators, Thailand is popular with Russians, but the lack of direct flights and the high cost of flights with forced connections are holding back demand . According to representatives of the tour operator, if Aeroflot launches direct flights, this will contribute to the growth of tourists' interest in the destination. However, early predictions should not be made until tickets are available for booking.
According to Telegram channel @ranarod, Phuket's appearance may be due to the fact that the winter schedule template from last year is currently duplicated, and with updating the direction will be removed.
