Dublin To Moscow Direct .... At Last!

Sat Feb 11, 2006 3:59 am

After the demise of Skynet airlines in 2004, the Dublin will once again see direct Moscow service this time by Polet Airlines. The new DUB - DME route will start on March 10th using a Yak-42 on mondays and fridays initially.

Yak 42s are not very economical, do I assume corectly?

Is there enough demand for EI to do this directly 3 times a week (A320) having pax connecting through DUB from places like MAD/LIS/LHR etc?

I'd say they could do it connecting passengers from their North American services. For one world members, you're out of luck if youre trying to get to Moscow. BA & IB offer evening flights out of DME, which arrive at LHR, MAD too late for connections. Even SN offers a connection which arrives too late. Finnair has a limited North American network, and once again, a late arrival into HEL. The only choice used to be spending a night somewhere in Europe on the return, or taking the Swiss 6AM flight which gave about 45-50 minute connection to most North American services, and for that you could get AA miles for one world. Now that LX is part of LH, Getting from North America to Moscow leaves you pretty screwed, or on to Delta, Lufthansa or Air France. If Aer Lingus were to offer a late morning / early afternoon departure out of DUB, arrive Moscow in the evening, and leave Moscow at about 6AM and arrive DUB in time for the BOS/BWI/ORD/JFK/LAX flights, that would give OneWorld passengers an option other than using a different alliance or spending a night in Europe.

right ofcourse. I should know better than to leave that out. However, Aeroflot is left with JFK IAD LAX YUL YYZ in North America, and has no agreements with any carriers. CO is ofcourse still pending EWR-DME service, and SU is still not part of SkyTeam. The original problem still stands. OneWorld has no Moscow-USA/Canada/Mexico traffic share. And Moscow is a huge city and a huge business center, still rapidly growing... Too bad for them. I think AA ORD-SVO/DME might do the trick though.

Has anyone clicked on the link to Polets website? Check out the fleet link and the seat map for the Yak-40. "Business Class with three luxury chairs and a sofa!". Very 1974 indeed!

How can they ever make money on this??? DUB-DME-DUB is EUR315 with taxes in economy they claim. But there are only 12 seats.. I really wonder...  scratchchin

Ah ok, I see. Well, they don't mention the Yak-42 on their website, so that's why we thought it's this funny cabin they're going to use to DUB.

TWA902fly, actually Finnair flies SVO-HEL-JFK 5-6 times per week, leaving Moscow 12.50pm, arriving New York 2.55pm.

I still want SU or EI to fly the route. I though that because of runway problems at DUB, EI could fly a DUB-SVO-HKG route with the 330. But this was way before CX announced SVO.

Still good news for Ireland, yet another destination added to the route map!

That is true. I have only been to Moscow once, and flew on an Aeroflot B777. It was a great flight! Even though I would not be surprised the captain was a former (possibly current) Red Airforce fighter pilot in the way he banked that aircraft.  bigthumbsup

An unrelated question, but when did EI announce its DXB flights? I have just been quoted a good price with EI via DUB.

Announced back in October.

Me too, there are lots of russians living in Dublin, I think both airlines could make a profit on the SVO route. There is confusion on which airline owns the operting right though, I think Skynet might still own it and there are ongoing efforts to resurect that airline.
