Pobeda's $15 Flights to Europe on Sale for One More Week

Pobeda was set up last year to replace Aeroflot's subsidiary Dobrolyot.

Russia's only budget airline, Pobeda, has extended for one more week sales of 999 ruble ($15) flights to its first international destinations — Vienna and Bratislava — the RIA Novosti news agency reported Monday, citing a company representative.

Pobeda decided to extend the sale of 999 rubles tickets for one more week starting from Monday, the unidentified spokesperson for the company told RIA, adding that altogether 7,000 tickets have been purchased since the start of the sale.

On Thursday Pobeda, a subsidiary of Russia's flag carrier Aeroflot, opened sales of tickets to Bratislava and Vienna, which involves a flight to Slovakia's capital and a bus ride to Vienna.

Pobeda was set up last year to replace Aeroflot's subsidiary Dobrolyot, which was forced to shut down after the European Union last year put the airline on a list of sanctioned companies over Russia's actions in Crimea.

Last month, Pobeda got permission to fly to international destinations.
