The biggest country in the world, Russia, is home to several major airlines and has a relatively great airport system. If you plan to book flights in Russia, there are few things to keep in mind, and we would like to share them with you today!

Booking Flights in Russia

Aeroflot is one of the oldest ones in the world, dating back to 1923, and considered to be the national airline of Russia. Other significant country airlines include the Sibir, Transaero, Pulkovo, and the SkyExpress. All of them boast diverse route networks and offer approximately the same range of services. As for the rest of the world, there are hundreds of airlines offering flights to Russia including British Airways (UK), Air Canada (Canada), American Airlines (USA), and Virgin Australia Airlines (Australia). As you can see, there are a lot of options to choose from when it comes to booking a flight to Russia and your choice should depend only on your preferences.

Flying in Russia

If you are planning to travel to/from a popular destination, most likely that you will have a choice between several daily (or at least weekly) departures. But don't postpone booking a ticket until the very last moment. You should always keep in mind that Russia is among the popular travel destinations in the world, so tickets to the favored cities get sold out pretty fast. A general rule is that the earlier you buy a ticket, the cheaper it'll cost. Also, a good way to save some money is booking a round-trip flight or choosing to travel with one of the budget airlines (like Utair or Pobeda). They might be very strict with such things as extra luggage, but they also allow you to travel from many European cities to Moscow for as little as €50 one way!

TIP:
To save money, we advise booking your round-trip flights with Russian budget airlines.
