The world’s most modern and fuel-efficient long-haul aircraft, the А350-900, will operate on this route in a three-class configuration – Business Class, Comfort Class (Aeroflot’s premium economy product) and Economy Class.
The addition of Moscow-Singapore service to Aeroflot’s route network strengthens the company’s offering on transit routes to Asia from Europe and North America, which forms a key part of the airline’s strategy. The Russian flag carrier offers convenient and fast transfers through its hub at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, with total travel times up to three hours shorter than those of competitors in Europe and Asia.
