Cancún - Moscow direct air service opens

There may be few takers, but for those so inclined there is now direct, nonstop air service between Cancún and Moscow. The route was inaugurated yesterday, and will be offered every other Monday and Friday. Flights are scheduled to arrive at Cancún International Airport at 8:00 a.m., departing at 10:00 a.m.

Aeroflot, Russia's national flag carrier, offers the bi-weekly service. Cancún has the distinction of being only one of three Latin American destinations served by Aeroflot. Havana is one of the other two. It has long been a popular destination for Russian tourists.

British Airways and Air France also initiated direct international service to Cancún in recent months.
