Thanks to the expansion of the fleet, we will be able to increase the schedule by about 30 more flights per day. This is very important both for us and for our clients who are waiting for Pobeda in their cities. Already in August, we were able to plan the opening of new flights on the routes St. Petersburg-Ulyanovsk and Moscow-Izhevsk.”
