Just in: Easyjet shuts Moscow route

Not enough people want to fly there from London, apparently. Wonder why. Flights will cease next March ‘because of reduced passenger interest.’

The only cheap carrier is now Wizz.

    “Wonder why?” Have something against Russia, and Moscow in particular? You sound as if it’s self-explanatory that EasyJet is closing their Moscow route and assume people should not want to visit Moscow. Personally, I’d love to visit Moscow and St. Petersburg myself, as well as other parts of that amazing and wondrous nation.

  • Rob Maynard says:

    Well, just to take one single group of potential travellers, gay people have probably cancelled any plans to visit Russia after all the state-sponsored homophobia of the past few years.

  • Christian Thompson says:

    Curious to know whether London to Moscow is the only Easyjet route which requires a UK national to have a visa.

  • Gonout Backson says:

    And yet they should have remembered the old Warsaw Pact saying: “go visit Russia before it visits you”.
