VILNIUS , June 17 (Itar-Tass) — Russian airline RusLine /IATA code 7R/ has re-launched flights between Moscow and Lithuania’s Baltic beach city of Palanga, a popular destination with many Russian holidaymakers during the Soviet era.
A Bombardier CRJ 200 regional jet belonging RusLine landed at Palanga’s international airport Sunday.
Flights will be made every Sunday from Moscow’s Domodedovo airport.
RusLine opened the sales of tickets to Palanga in spring and its expectations proved to be correct. According to the information published by Lithuanian media, the flights scheduled for July, which is the peak of the swimming season in Palanga, have been fully booked up.
The airline had a trial test with Palanga last summer and it was quite successful, too, but the onset of cold seasons of the year reduced the numbers of passengers sharply and it had to suspend all the winter schedules in spite of a willingness to keep the route functional all year round.
RusLine is the only airline in Russia whose fleet consists entirely of Bombardier CRJ 200 regional jets. The latter have a seating capacity for 50 passengers and can fly nonstop over distances of about 3,000 km with payloads slightly exceeding 6,000 kilograms.
