Pushkin International Airport (SVO). The first departure to SVO will take place on the 13th anniversary of Etihad’s first direct service to Moscow in December 2008.

The move to SVO will be enhanced by daily Etihad services between Abu Dhabi and Moscow. Flights depart Abu Dhabi at 9.35am each day, with the return service departing Moscow at 3.50 pm.

Etihad’s service changes will be complemented by the launch of a broader partnership with Russia’s national airline group, Aeroflot - Russian Airlines (Aeroflot). Aeroflot will launch its first ever services to Abu Dhabi, the UAE capital, three times weekly from 13 November.

In conjunction with both carriers operating between Moscow and the UAE capital, and subject to any necessary regulatory approvals, Etihad and Aeroflot have agreed to enhance their interline agreement, launch codeshare services across their respective networks, and explore other areas of cooperation to enhance guest benefits, such as frequent flyer reciprocity and premium customer handling. The carriers will also explore opportunities to cooperate in operational areas by leveraging each group’s capabilities and strengths.

The daily flights will be operated by with a mix of widebody and narrowbody aircraft, including the technologically advanced Boeing 787 Dreamliner, featuring the airline’s innovative, award-winning cabin designs and products, complemented by its acclaimed service and hospitality.
