Russian Airlines FAQ

Here's some first-hand travel advice that will save your money and time when traveling to / within Russia by air.

Carry-On and Check-in Luggage Regulations in Russia

You should watch out as some airlines exclude the check-in luggage from their low prices. For example, while Aeroflot always includes check-in luggage (max 23 kg) in all their tickets (even the budget ones), Utair and Pobeda exclude check-in luggage from their cheapest offers. You can pay extra for a better ticket and get the 20 kg allowance, but make sure you check your bags because if you have 2 kg more, you might have to end up paying €50-€100 extra. Also make sure you check the carry-on luggage allowance. For example, Aeroflot allows up to 10 kg bag plus a small laptop bag, while Pobeda (the Russian low-coster) would not allow you even that (only 1 carry-on max 5 kg). Utair is the same as Aeroflot, but only if you pay extra for the premium ticket.

Long-Haul Flights to Asia from Russia

Russian airlines are great for long-haul flights to Asia. They offer an extensive network and direct comfortable flights. Check out Aeroflot and their subsidiary Rossiya airlines for flights to Thailand, India, Sri-Lanka. Sometimes you can get a return direct flight for as low as €350.
