Russia's Budget Airline Pobeda Launches Flights to Munich, Zurich

Russia's Pobeda budget airline has begun selling tickets for flights to Munich and Zurich. The flights will begin on March 3, the company said in a statement Tuesday.

Pobeda will operate daily flights to the new destinations, according to the statement. Ticket prices start from 999 rubles ($13).

However, the flights in question will operate to Germany's Memmingen airport and bus transfers to Zurich and Munich will be provided.

Pobeda is a subsidiary of Russia's flagship carrier Aeroflot. It was launched in 2014 to replace Aeroflot's low-cost airline Dobrolyot, which was forced to close down because of Western sanctions.

In December, Pobeda launched its first flights to international destinations — to Slovakia's Bratislava and Austria's Vienna.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
