I just read in the morning news that No. 2 Russian airline (1st this year in terms of passengers flown), Sibir, is launching no-frills flights starting at $10 one-way between Moscow and Nihzhny-Novgorod on Tu-154-M aircraft. Prices will range from $10 to $75 for business class. The article questioned whether the Tu-154M is economical enough to support flights at that price, but the airline, which has proved its mettle in other areas, has obviously thought this one through. I think drinks will be served, but that's all. I can already hear the jokes about Russian no-frills on a Tu-154M, but actually this is a great idea as this makes travel cheaper than or equal to the train, and of course saves many hours. It should be popular with many businessmen/women who can now make a day trip. I think Sibir operates from Domodedovo in Moscow. I hope this works out!

I usually don't post any replies to this forum, but this topic seems really interesting...

Afay1, where did you really find this information from?

Wow, it's always good to see the development of Russian aviation. I hope they add more destinations too, it'll be great to be able to reach those out of way areas by plane cheaply!

I read an article on yesterday's Moscow Times. It is perhaps still online at www.themoscowtimes.com
