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.
