Transaero Airlines has launched a twice-weekly direct service between Heathrow and St Petersburg.

The scheduled service operates on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with a Boeing 737 offering Discount class of service.

The flights, operating under the flight numbers UN416 and 415, depart Heathrow at 18:30, arriving at 01:50 local time at St Petersburg’s Pulkovo Airport. The return flights depart St Petersburg at 15:40, arriving at Heathrow at 16:10. Return fares lead in at £186 including taxes.

Discount class is a new product from the carrier, launched in mid-January, and includes free luggage allowance from 10-20 kg, which depends on the ticket fare, as well as free onboard meals and drinks. Passengers with Discount Class tickets purchased at the highest available airfare can also enjoy air travel with a vacant seat next to his/her seat.

Meanwhile, the carrier will serve 165 routes during the winter 2014/15 operational season, 16 routes more than the previous winter.
