Rossiya to deploy B747 to Dubrovnik

NEWS FLASH


Rossiya Airlines will deploy its 522-seat Boeing 747-400 aircraft from Moscow to Dubrovnik at the start of the 2018 summer season. According to the "Avioradar" portal, the airline will run two charter flights, on April 16 and April 20, using the wide-body jet. Although a last-minute change in equipment is always possible, the arrival of the quadjet is expected at 10.45 local time, while its departure back to Moscow is scheduled for 12.25. It will mark the first time a Russian airline has used a B747 on a passenger service to Croatia since the now-defunct Transaero operated the aircraft on its flights to Dubrovnik and Pula.

    4. Anon 1:48pm maybe 20k in winter but lets see in July and August who the real player is. DBV will even be more than 3 million this year, just for your info.

    5. Split also has 30k in winter, but it was the busiest airport in July 2017 in Ex-Yu!

    6. Yes, but DBV will most likely be the top Croatian airport if not in 2018, then 2019 that´s for sure.

    7. 20k on 40k of total population....damn, that's busy.
      30k on 140k is so so.

      If you want to speak in real numbers.

      If not, walk away.

    8. So what about DBV population? There are so many towns with small population and huge traffic.

    1. How are two B747 flights more important than scheduled B777-300 flying all the time?

    2. Who says they are, Anon 6:50? So, we can't get excited over B747, even if it's only 2 flights?

    1. Because of two charter flights? Do you know how many daily flights there are from Russia to Montenegro in the summer? What a dumb statement.
