The United Arab Emirates’ airline Emirates has decided to launch its new direct air route linking Moscow – Dubai – Ho Chi Minh City now until September 30.

According to the announcement on July 13, the Emirates Moscow Office informed that the route has been open to meet the demand of any travelers to visit Vietnam’s beautiful scenery such as Ha Long Bay, the former imperial city of Hue, Hoi An ancient city, Ho Chi Minh City formerly known as the Far East Pearl and other beaches in the country.

For a round trip costing 21,000 rupees (nearly US$650), including taxes and other airport charges, passengers fly directly from Moscow to the Vietnamese southern metro. The plane will fly direct from Moscow to HCM City and transit in Dubai on the way back where passengers are offered an overnight stay at local hotels and free transport services.

Also, as scheduled, on 2nd December 2012, Emirates will launch the first A380 service to Moscow – one of two daily flights.

Emirates A380 offers Private Suits in First Class, flat-bed seats in Business Class and extra room in Economy Class. All cabins provide customers access to mobile phone onboard, Wi-Fi and more than 1,200 channels of their in-flight entertainment system. First Class and Business Class passengers can relax and socialize with fellow passengers in Onboard Lounge. There are also luxury Shower Spas exclusively for First Class passengers.

The flight with A380 from Moscow to Dubai will start from around RUB 18,000 in Economy Class (approximately US$ 555).

Emirates flights to Moscow arrive at Domodedovo International Airport, 42km southeast of central Moscow. The easiest way of reaching the city centre after Moscow flights is via the AeroExpress train service which links the airport with Paveletsky Rail Terminal in downtown Moscow. Alternatively, passengers arriving from flights to Moscow can take the frequent coach service which connects with Moscow’s Metro system at Domodedovskaya and is ideal for onward travel, or one of the city’s many taxis. You must register your stay with the authorities within seven days of arrival; your hotel may do this on your behalf but it pays to check.
