MOSCOW, June 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Germany’s Lufthansa air carrier has opened direct flights from Moscow’s Vnukovo airport to Hamburg, Dusseldorf and Berlin, an official at the Russian airport administration said on Monday.
The German air company had started its flights from Vnukovo in March 2012, when Lufthansa’s flights linked Moscow and Frankfurt. Now, the company makes flights to Moscow’s two airports – Vnukovo and Domodedovo, the official said.
Lufthansa is the leading foreign company on the Russian market and in the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). The company performs more than 200 flights a week to 17 cities, including Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Perm, Rostov-on-Don, Samara, St. Petersburg, Tashkent and Yekaterinburg.
Vnukovo is one of Russia’s largest airports. The Moscow city government is the major shareholder of the Vnukovo Airport company. The government holds a 75-percent stake.
In spring 2011, Vladimir Putin declared that Moscow’s Sheremetyevo and Vnukovo airports will be joined into a unified compound.
