MOSCOW, January 19. /TASS/. Air France plans to operate a series of flights to Paris (Charles de Gaulle) from Moscow (Sheremetyevo) and St. Petersburg (Pulkovo) in February and March.
"Air France is launching a new series of flights from February 1 to March 27, 2021, departing from Sheremetyevo and St. Petersburg," the French Consulate General in Moscow said on Facebook.
Flights will be operated on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays from Moscow and on Saturdays from St. Petersburg.
At the same time, the Consulate General recalled the need to make sure that the passenger has the right to enter France before booking a flight. Also, everyone arriving over 11 years old must have a negative PCR test for coronavirus, passed less than 72 hours before departure. Without the appropriate document, the passenger will be denied boarding, the Consulate General said.
At the moment, entry into the territory of France is allowed only for certain categories of passengers, for example, citizens of France and their family members, holders of a residence permit, and some other categories upon presentation of the relevant documents.
In late December 2019, Chinese officials informed the World Health Organization (WHO) about the outbreak of a previously unknown pneumonia in the city of Wuhan, in central China. Since then, cases of the novel coronavirus - named COVID-19 by the WHO - have been reported in every corner of the globe, including Russia. On March 11, 2020, the WHO declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic.
