For the business season Nizhny Novgorod Airport launches additional flight to St. Petersburg

From October 1, Nizhny Novgorod International Airport adds one more daily flight to St. Petersburg to its timetable. Ak Bars Aero is staring the service having signed an agreement on the development of regional transportation with the airport and the Government of the Nizhny Novgorod Region in July. Direct scheduled flight to the northern capital will be operated on the 50-seat aircraft CRJ-200, departure from Nizhniy Novgorod at 17:45, flight time - 1 hour 45 minutes.

Let’s recall, that the regular service between Nizhny Novgorod and St. Petersburg was resumed in June 2011 by UTair after a 15-year break. Since then, the daily morning flight has established itself in the timetable of the Nizhny Novgorod aviation hub, and become the second popular domestic flight carried out from Nizhny Novgorod Airport. Average passenger load keeps at 90% or higher.

- When we launched scheduled flights to St. Petersburg a year and a half s ago, we predicted the strong demand for this destination, and our estimates came true. Furthermore, in the beginning of 2012, it became apparent that the demand for this route is beyond the capacity of one flight a day, commented MANN General Director Alexander Sinelnikov. - This is why, when developing specific actions under the regional development program, and planning to open 10 new routes (5 to the west and 5 to east of the country), primary attention was paid to launching of the St.Petersburg’s flight.

Additional daily flight during the autumn/winter period will make the Nizhny Novgorod Airport timetable more convenient for passengers:

Departure from Nizhny Novgorod / Arrival at St.Petersburg

Departure from St.Petersburg / Arrival at Nizhny Novgorod


07:40 / 09:40

21:00 / 23:00


17:45 / 19:30

09:40 / 11:25

Moreover, for greater mobility of passengers, check-in at the St.Petersburg destination closes 20 minutes before the departure.

Sales for the new flight have already opened in all reservation systems, as well as in all ticket offices of the city. Tickets without agency fees and charges can be purchased from the airport website on page "Book Online."
