Support The Moscow Times!

Low-Cost London

The British airline easyJet will fly between London and Moscow on Monday with return ticket prices starting at 6000 rubles ($195). Two of Russia's low-cost airlines, SkyExpress and Avianova have failed in the past two years. Another low-cost airline, Red Wings, owned by businessman Alexander Lebedev, had its license revoked in February after a fatal accident at Vnukovo Airport and is now partly for sale. Lebedev's German charter airline, Blue Wings, ceased trading in 2010.
