The airline has not set a start date for flights nor announced on what equipment they will run. Pobeda (Russian for "Victory") is the low cost arm of Aeroflot (SU, Moscow Sheremetyevo) and runs services using a fleet of twelve B737-800s.
Goa will mark the tenth international destination for the carrier, which services Russian domestic routes as well as scheduled international services to Almaty, Baku, Bratislava, Cologne/Bonn, Girona, Larnaca, Memmingen, Milan Orio al Serio, and Tbilisi.
Goa is a popular beach-side tourist destination which every year welcomes a large influx of Russian visitors arriving on charter flights. Russia's recent economic downturn has seen a decline in visitor numbers, however Russians still remain the top tourist demographic, according to numbers quoted in The Hindu.
