SEOUL, Sep 19, 2020, KBS World. Russia will resume regular flights to and from South Korea from September 27. The resumption comes after flights were suspended in March, KBS World reported.
Moscow said the decision was reached during a meeting of the state coronavirus crisis center held Friday.
The government body announced that it decided to resume flights to Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Belarus from September 21 and to South Korea from the 27th based on the principle of reciprocity.
Russia’s flagship carrier Aeroflot is expected to operate a once-a-week flight between Moscow and Incheon.
