Aeroflot, the Russian state-controlled airline, is to launch a direct daily flight from Moscow to Dublin from October in a move which is hoped will greatly boost trade and tourism between the two countries.

The flight will leave Moscow’s main Sheremetyevo airport at 7.20pm, with an arrival in Dublin at 8.45pm. The return leg will depart Dublin at 7.20pm and arrive back in the Russian capital at 5.00am.
