Aeroflot low-cost unit Pobeda has suspended all flights until the end of May following the introduction of travel restrictions by the Russian government.

Russia called a halt to all international air travel from 27 March and the temporary suspension of mass recreational events as part of its fight against the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Pobeda will now suspend flights from 1 April until 31 May. 

The Aeroflot unit operates 28 Boeing 737-800s on a mix of domestic and international flights.

Following the Russian ban on international air travel, Aeroflot says it is continuing to operate special flights to repatriate Russian citizens ”until such time as a decision is taken to cease these flights.”
