Due to unexpected additional circumstances affecting flight operations, Aeroflot has announced a temporary suspension of all international flights beginning March 8 (00:00 MSK).
Rossiya Airlines and Aurora Airlines’ international services (flights SU5400-5799 and SU5950-6999) will also be canceled.
To prevent the possibility of customers being unable to use return flights to Russia, beginning March 6 (00:00 MSK), Aeroflot will no longer accept passengers on overseas flights who have return tickets with a return leg to Russia dated after March 8, 2022.
Passengers on overseas flights with one-way tickets departing from Russia will be allowed to board until the flights are suspended.

Passengers on foreign flights that have been canceled are entitled to a full refund of their tickets.
Passengers on international flights who are currently outside of Russia and have return tickets that include a flight segment from Russia that has already been utilized can contact the airline to rebook the return section to Russia before the flights are suspended.
For passengers who are still outside of Russia when flights are suspended, the airline will make every effort to arrange their return to Russia.
It is vital to keep up with the airline’s press releases and individual information updates delivered to the contact information provided during the booking process.
Please note that passengers on canceled flights do not need to contact the airline for a refund in order to lessen the workload of the contact center and sales offices dealing with Russian residents’ repatriation concerns.
Unused tickets can be returned or rebooked on a different itinerary for free until the end of 2022.
