Ural Airlines increases flights to Yekaterinburg

The carrier will serve the Russian city six times a week with an A320

Air carrier Ural Airlines has announced that it will increase the number of scheduled flights between the Koltsovo International Airport in Yekaterinburg and Václav Havel Airport Prague.

From March 6, 2019, the Russian-based carrier will offer passengers up to six connections a week, daily except Mondays. The airline will be using an Airbus A320 aircraft on this route.

This increase in service will partially fill the capacity lost by the cancellation of flights by another carrier. Although the route is primarily used by Russian and Chinese passengers, thanks to transfers, passengers from the Czech Republic who want to fly to the region or neighboring countries can also use it.

Ural Airlines ranks among the most important air carriers in Russia due to the number of passengers transported. In 2018, more than 9,000,579 passengers were transported, a 13 percent increase compared to 2017.

The carrier offers travelers more than 200 destinations. Its fleet consists of 47 Airbus aircraft, currently with 24 A320s, 16 A321s and 7 A319s. Expansion of the fleet with newer Airbus A320neo family or Boeing 737 Next Generation is being considered, and new plane deliveries are expected in 2019.

Ural Airlines has won many national and international awards such as Wings of Russia, SafetyLeaders Awards, Best Russian Social Projects, National Geographic Traveler Award, Time of Innovations and more.

Ural Airlines began in 1943 as a state firm to operate from the then-new airport at Yekaterinburg and was later merged into Aeroflot. After Aeroflot was broken up in 1993, Ural Airlines began independent operations again. In 2010 the carrier retired all of its Antonov An-24s, Ilyushin Il-86s and Tupolev Tu-154B2s. The airline's Tupolev Tu-154M was retired in 2011.

Koltsovo International Airport is located 16 km southeast of Yekaterinburg. The airport is a hub for Ural Airlines as well as RusLine and Aviacon Zitotrans. Due to its location in the center of Russia, the airport is listed as a Priority Airports by Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency. The airport has 2 runways.
