Why Russian Aeroflot flies to Turkish Antalya airport from Moscow 5 hours 35 minutes, and Turkish Airlines covers this distance in 4 hours 20 minutes? The answer to the logical puzzle about flying to Turkey in the context of geopolitical changes was explained by the Yandex.Zen channel. In addition, there are other differences in the work of the two airlines.
As the author explained, the answer to the question lies in the closed skies and the use of alternative routes by Russian carriers: “Aeroflot flies around the southern airports of the country, which were closed again yesterday (May 12) until May 19. Further through Kazakhstan and down to Antalya. Do not forget that the European skies are closed for Aeroflot and our charters. Therefore, the path to the sea is long.
“Temporary flight restrictions at 11 Russian airports have been extended until May 19, 2022, 03:45 Moscow time,” the release said earlier. We are talking about Anapa, Belgorod, Bryansk, Voronezh, Gelendzhik, Krasnodar, Kursk, Lipetsk, Rostov-on-Don, Simferopol and Elista.
At the same time, Turkish Airlines, the flag carrier of Turkey, also flies around closed airports in southern Russia. “But this is a Turkish company, the European way is not closed for it. Planes leave Moscow towards Belarus, then the route goes through Poland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria. And you are there!” added the expert.
In addition, she noted that the difference lies not only in routes, but also in services. If Aeroflot feeds tourists with a hot breakfast or lunch, then Turkish Airlines does not offer hot meals on all flights. Plus one in favor of the Russian Aeroflot. But at the Turkish airline, passengers do not sit hungry, they are offered tea with sandwiches.
Turkishi can send their Anadolu Jet low-cost airline instead of themselves, and tourists will find out about this already at the airport. There is no food at all. But this is another story with the replacement of the airline…”, the author warned. It was also reported that the airliners of both airlines are “solid, clean, and the flight attendants are beautiful.”
