Aeroflot is scheduled to launch the route on October 25th, 2020 using its new A350-900.  Here is the flight schedule:

Aeroflot will be competing with Singapore Airlines on its route from Moscow to Singapore.  However, Singapore Airlines flies to nearby Moscow-Domedevedo meaning that Aeroflot will have no competitors from Moscow-Sheremetyevo.  Singapore Airlines operates its route 5x weekly, like Aeroflot, on its A350-900. The Singaporean carrier also offers a 5th freedom route to Stockholm from Moscow.


This year, Aeroflot is launching two new routes to Japan, Tokyo-Haneda and Osaka-Kansai at the expense of ending Tokyo-Narita using it's A350-900 and B777-300ER respectively.  Also, Aeroflot is launching flights to Mumbai using an A330-200. The growth is fueled by the carrier's incoming A350-900 with 15 on order. Also, the carrier has three incoming B777-300ER which will fuel more growth.

Aeroflot will operate this route using its new bird, the A350-900, which offers 316 seats.  The carrier's A350 showcases 28 business class seats, in a 1-2-1 configuration, 24 premium economy seats in a 2-4-2 configuration, and 264 economy seats in a 3-3-3 configuration.


Aeroflot Deputy CEO for Commerce and Finance, Andrey Chikhanchin, states, "Aeroflot is constantly expanding its international route network, continually providing new unique opportunities for passengers. The addition of the modern and fuel-efficient long-haul А350-900 to the Aeroflot fleet allows the airline to further strengthen its competitive advantages, among which are high quality service and superior value for money."
