Emirates Boosts Capacity to St Petersburg

Emirates has reinforced its commitment to Russia by upgrading its aircraft servicing the St Petersburg route.

The change from the Airbus 330-200 to a Boeing 777-300ER will mean a capacity increase of 50 percent and will be applied on six weekly flights from October 25, while from December 1, the airline will deploy the same aircraft on a seventh frequency.

As Thierry Aucoc, senior vice president, commercial operations, Europe and Russia, Emirates, noted, over the past 12 years, the airline has carried more than 3.6 million passengers to and from Russia.
