Russian airline Domodedovo Airlines plans on becoming the third airline flying between the US and Russia later this year. The airline is planning to begin scheduled charter service from Moscow's Domodedovo airport to both New York City and Miami later this year. The flights to Miami and New York City will be operated with IL-96-300(!) aircraft configured with 22 seats in business and 245 in economy. The airline recieved DOT approval to start the services this past May. Awesome news!

Domodedovo Airlines route network includes many domestic and former U.S.S.R. destinations from Moscow's Domodedovo airport and a decent number of holiday destinations from the airport, including Bangkok, Barcelona, Goa (India), and Thessaloniki.

The PR from the airline is here (Russian only):

Is the IL96 certified to fly in the US? Regardless, this sounds really cool.

Yes. Domodedovo Airlines went through all the nessecary procedures to certify themselves and their IL-96-300s to fly to the United States:

That really is cool. I'd love to get to see them the next time I'm down in MIA.


I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

The article says flights to Miami will be completed weekly, but didn't mention flights to New York. Will they route the Il-96 DME-JFK-MIA?
Yes! The Il-96 is wide, comfortable. Will the New York-Moscow market handle four carriers though? Continental (coming soon), Delta, Aeroflot, Domodedovo (Coming Soon
DME-MIA will do well, I'm certain. Why don't they run DME-ORD? That's a good route that's untapped so far, maybe once or twice a week.
How often will service be to JFK?

I'm sure it is--Aeroflot use to operate it to LAX and to SEA on occasion. I'd love to fly on a -86 or -96.

The IL-96's are more than capable of going trans-at from Russia, so are Domodedovo's IL-62s.

Great, great news.

I've flown the IL-96-300 many times, they're brilliant, brilliant aircraft.

What is the Domodedovo IL-96's config?

Great news, does any other Rusian airline operate transatlantic flights other than Aeroflot?

Does this mean Aeroflot could operate the IL-96 to the US daily?

They have done in the past, not daily, but Aeroflots 96's have been to JFK and SEA if I can recall correctly.

Drerx7 said it first.

Transaero has flights to Montreal with the 767, but no American destinations. Great news that Domodedovo will be coming with IL-96!

Fantastic news. We get to see IL-96-300s in Miami! Can't wait to see them, hopefully they will arrive/depart during the day so we can see them. Cool!

Thanks for the great news.  thumbsup

IIRC SU tried ORD service but cancelled the flights. I'm not sure if they were charter or not. I managed to sneak on board an IL-86 when I worked for AA. The cabin was relatively modern an reminded me of an L-1011 as there were no central overhead bins. That is a major drawback. Of course on the -86 has the lower deck storage. It was hilarious seeing the ground handling company bring over stair trucks and being completely confused when the lower deck doors opened! I also got on board a RO Il-62. The front part of aircraft was devoid of seats. I'm not sure if it was for weight restrictions or for cargo.

MIA and JFK will be operated seperately, each 1x a week.

Schedules have not been released. At MIA, Domodedovo Airlines will almost certainly use the F Concourse.

More than likely, any new international airline that comes to JFK would go to Terminal 4. Second best bet is Terminal 1.

I know an Il-96 is something, and maybe I'll finally get reasonable fares without having to deal with Aeroflot, with whom, I have been less than satisfied.

25 N77014 : What is the aim of the MIA service? Latin America-Moscow business market? Ethnic? Air freight? High yield leisure?
26 Post contains links Afay1 : Here is a link to their website describing service classes. Apparently they have PTVs in First Class and overhead for the rest.
27 MAH4546 : As it is a scheduled charter service, the aim is ethnic travel (huge Russian community in SoFL) and leisure.
