The airline recommenced scheduled international flights to Maldives on September 10, with 2 weekly frequencies to the idyllic destination on the days of Sunday, Thursday and Friday. The operation carried out on September 10 marked the first flight of Aeroflot operated to the country since Russia’s borders closed on March 28 in response to COVID-19 pandemic. 

Two more frequencies will be added to the resuming air travel service to Maldives from Moscow along with the initially operated two flight operations carried out on a weekly basis. 

Russia has been a traditionally strong market for the Maldives.
