Any TU-204 Routes In Western Russia?

Mon Oct 29, 2012 7:47 am

Hey guys,

Was looking at flying the TU-204 however I don't want to fly all the way to Vladivostok to get on one. Do Aeroflot still operate one on behalf of Vladivostok on the SVO-AER route? Or is there another one with another airline which is bookable?

cheers

Hi,

RedWings operates their TU204 on scheduled flights out of Vnukovo, as well. For example to Kaliningrad, Novosibirsk or Yekaterinburg.

Appearently, these flights are bookable through agent.ru

??? VVO is considerably closer to Oz than western Russia, unless you are already in Europe.

Yes, you can still fly SVO-AER on a Tu-204 but it's the other way around - Vladivostok Air operating on behalf of Aeroflot. It's a daily flight and bookable on the Aeroflot website.

Red Wings also has scheduled flights from VKO as Skyeurope mentioned - those flights are bookable on www.agent.ru

Yes will already be in Europe!

Thanks for the info, I tried to find it on agent.ru and aeroflot.com but couldn't find it. I will look again.
cheers!

I flew AER-SVO a couple of months ago on the Vladivostok Air TU204. It cost me about 100 EUR one way and it was a very pleasant experience. They even had a decent meal in economy.

I stand corrected, it appears not to be operating at the moment. I guess it was a seasonal route over summer only.

Looks like you'll have to try Red Wings. They have flights to Kaliningrad at quite reasonable prices
