Germanwings axes Dusseldorf to Moscow service

21 Jan 2015 by GrahamSmith

Germanwings is cancelling its Dusseldorf to Moscow Vnukovo service in March.

The airline currently flies to the Russian capital three/four-times weekly, but will cease this operation on March 2, reports

From that date, flights GWI 9992 and GWI 9993 will no longer be available.

The news comes a day after Easyjet announced it will almost halve its London Gatwick to Moscow Domodedovo service this summer (see news, January 20).

It is unclear whether the cutbacks are linked to the threat of sanctions against western airlines made by Russia in the aftermath of the tragic shootdown of Malayia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine by Russia-backed rebels (see news, July 17).
