Aeroflot completes 60 years of scheduled flights to Delhi, India

Russia’s flagship carrier Aeroflot has just marked 60 years of scheduled flights to Delhi, the capital of India. The first regular flight between Moscow and Delhi took place on August 18, 1958 on a Tu-104.

India was Aeroflot’s first country in Southeast Asia, and since then Aeroflot has been operating the Moscow-Delhi route without a break.

As demand on the route increased, so did the flight frequencies.

At the end of 1950s, Aeroflot offered only one weekly flight to India. Today, the Russian flag carrier operates two daily flights between Moscow and Delhi using modern and comfortable Airbus A330 aircraft.
