Bodrum airport begins hosting Ural Airlines flights of Moscow
MUĞLAOperated by TAV Airports, the Milas-Bodrum Airport has begun hosting Moscow Domodedovo flights by Russia-based Ural Airlines, said the company in a written statement on Aug. 25.
The first flight, which was performed on Aug. 25 by an Airbus A321 type aircraft, was welcomed with water arches on the apron, according to the statement.
Some 200 passengers and the flight crew arriving in Bodrum were presented with flowers by TAV Milas-Bodrum officials. A cocktail reception was held to celebrate the first flight of Ural Airlines, which was recently included in the flight network of Bodrum with the attendance of high ranking officials. “As soon as TAV Airports took over the operation of the Milas-Bodrum Airport, one of the major tourism destinations in Turkey, TAV started to carry out intensive works to expand the flight network in Bodrum. TAV continues its promotional campaigns to increase particularly direct international flights to Bodrum in collaboration with local authorities and NGOs.
Including Moscow Domodedovo flights of Ural Airlines to Bodrum’s flight network is an outcome of these endeavors. TAV will continue contributing to the regional tourism by expanding its flight network,” said TAV Milas-Bodrum Chief Operating Officer İclal Kayaoğlu.
Ural Airlines is going to make direct reciprocal flights between Milas-Bodrum and Moscow Domodedovo three times a week between Aug. 25 and Oct. 16, according to the statement.
Meanwhile, Russia lifted all restrictions on regular flights to Turkey as of July 22 after months of strained ties, while charter flights remain suspended but officials say they are moving to resume those too.
