I've noticed an article in the Miami Today of DMO's new destination MIA!
The article is some month old but didn't found something here in the forum.
|Quoting Miami Today:
Direct flights between Moscow and Miami could begin in May or June.
Domodedovo Airlines, Russia's third-largest air carrier, got US Department of Transportation approval Jan. 19 - at least a month later than planned - but could still launch in late spring.
In the 1990s, Aeroflot operated flights between Miami and Moscow, a route that gained support in another part of Europe. "What kept the Aeroflot route afloat was the Shannon stop," said Mr. Mangos, "where Irish tourists boarded."
I really don't know if the payload will be good! Can't imagine that so many Russian tourist will come to sunny Miami... but we will see.
Do they will come with the Il-96? Can't imagine a Il62 will make the long way down there...
Or will it be like in the 90', with a stopover in SNN?
Got something funny in the article above:
|Quoting Miami Today:|
Aviation officials are also waiting to hear from South African Airways about non-stop services to Cape Town and Johannesburg.
"We are waiting for an announcement from the airline," Mr. Mangos said. "This was to happen in January but there has been no word yet."
What do you think?
