Aeroflot resumes regular flights from Moscow to Seoul

Aeroflot will resume regular flights from Moscow to the capital of South Korea - Seoul from October 1, the airline said. Flights will be operated once a week on Thursdays (flight SU0250 Moscow - Seoul). Return flight SU0251 Seoul - Moscow will be operated on Saturdays.

When entering South Korea, passengers will have to undergo a medical examination no more than 48 hours before departure. Moreover, after arrival, the coronavirus test will need to be passed at the airport and, regardless of its results, travelers will have to quarantine for 14 days. After returning from abroad to Moscow, Russians will have to take a coronavirus test within three days and post the results on the public services portal.

With the restoration of international air traffic, the frequency of flights may change, Aeroflot noted.

Russia, amid the pandemic, has limited air traffic with other countries. In early September, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree on the resumption of international air traffic with Egypt, the UAE, and the Maldives. Prior to that, Russia resumed flights with Turkey, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, and Tanzania. Test source:  www.tass.com

 Saint Petersburg joins the word Safe Tourism movement, becoming the first city in Russia which developed and offered its solutions for safe stay in the city.

The Committee for tourism development of Saint Petersburg has developed and agreed with the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor) safety standards for city tourism organizations. The documents contain basic requirements for sanitary conditions, access features, and other necessary measures.
