New flights from Cologne/Bonn to Moscow with S7 Russian airline to fly the A320neo to Domodedovo
New airline for Cologne Bonn Airport: On 6 May, the Russian airline S7 Airlines will be taking off for the first time from Cologne/Bonn with a flight heading for Moscow. S7 will be operating weekly flights from the Rhineland airport to Moscow-Domodedovo (DME). With the Airbus A320neo, they will be using one of a new generation of aircraft for the route to Moscow – with improved fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions, this aircraft is also up to 50 percent quieter than its predecessor.
“At the beginning of May, we will be welcoming a new airline to Cologne/Bonn – S7 Airlines. This is a very positive signal for our airport – we are pleased to be adding a new route and are looking forward to working with S7, who will be using a state-of-the-art aircraft – the A320neo – for their flights from our airport, one that is quieter and more efficient than its predecessor,” Johan Vanneste, President & CEO of Flughafen Köln/Bonn GmbH tells us.
Every Thursday, an S7 Airlines flight will take off from Moscow-Domodedovo at 12.30 on its way to Cologne/Bonn, with an arrival time of 14:55 in Cologne/Bonn. The return flight will leave on the same day (take off in Cologne/Bonn at 15:55, arrival in Moscow-Domodedovo at 20:10). S7 Airlines is a member of the international airline alliance Oneworld which means that there are many other attractive connection options.
