Foreign airlines have sent over 120 requests to carry out charter flights with British football fans to Moscow airports, as coordinator of the UEFA Champions League Final project Alexei Sorokin reports. According to his words, the first British football fans are expected to arrive on May 19 with regular and charter flights, but the majority of fans (around 30000) will come to Moscow early morning May 21.
The football fans will be delivered separately: Chelsea fans will fly to Sheremetyevo and Vnukovo airports and Manchester United fans to Domodedovo. Several thousand fans will stay in Moscow hotels which they have managed to book, Mr. Sorokin said.
From the airports the fans will be transferred to the city by around 600 buses decorated with logotypes of their favourite football teams.
Don’t give up!
If you are a Chelsea fan departing from London, apparently there are quite a lot of flights that are still bookable. Try BA, BMI, Aeroflot, Transaero Airlines for direct flights or check for non-direct flights with a travel agent or online travel consolidator like Expedia, Travelocity, Opodo etc.
If you are a Manchester United fan departing from Manchaster, Czech Airlines and Finnair have non direct flights, or check multiple carriers on travel portals.
