Why does UN operate the same route from two different Moscow airports? Are they that far apart that they serve different clientele?

The two airports are not close together and DME is by far more technologically advanced than SVO. DME is also Russia's first airport to have parallel runways that can operate simultaneously. It's about 42km southeast of Moscow and is a major hub for S7, and to a lesser extent UN. Also, airlines such as AB, BA, LH, UA, etc. (and soon CX) utilize DME.

SVO is about 28km north-west of Moscow and serves as SU's hub. Given that SU uses SVO as its primary hub, other SkyTeam members use that airport, e.g. AF, DL, KE, KL, etc.

Nice! I'm intrigued by UN operations in the Caribbean, the Russian market holds great potential as a new, non-traditional tourist market. With many Russians being billionaires, it may be high time that the Barbados Tourism Authority court UN and some tour operators to get Transaero at BGI at least once weekly during the Winter.

Would love to see the 747 or triple 7 on the GAIA ramp!

Does any one know if it is possible to buy CUN-DME tickets? In the web site CUN does not appear as a departure point, only as an arrival point. Meanwhile, other Caribbean destinations do appear as departure points.


Next flight: IAH-DBX-MRU-ANT

From http://www.anna.aero/2010/06/02/russ...transaero-grows-70pc-year-to-date/

Quote:
While Transaero’s main operations are and remain at Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport, the airline has decided that some of the flights on the airline’s high frequency routes (defined as three or more flights per day) will be moved over to Sheremetyevo airport. The reasoning behind this is both that passengers in the north of the Moscow catchment area have a preference for Sheremetyevo and that passengers will be able to transfer between Transaero and other airlines serving the Aeroflot dominated airport. Routes that will be affected are for example to Tel Aviv and Astana as well as to leisure destinations like Sharm El-Sheikh and Antalya.

Cheers for the info!

So it's basically to keep them competitive- makes sense!

On 4/29/10, Sheremetyevo Airport (SVO) and Transaero signed a memorandum of strategic cooperation which states that, "Transaero will tend to increase the number of flights from Sheremetyevo yearly by 50% to the previous year during five-year period of the memorandum."
