Utair Airlines Boeing 737-800 takes off at the Vnukovo International Airport in Moscow, Russia.

Utair, a leading Russian airline company, will operate flights connecting Moscow and Split from June to the end of September 2020, which is the third flight service to be operated this year for that route, the Croatian National Tourist Board (HTZ) announced last Thursday.

There will be 168 seats available on the route, and the first flight from Moscow has been scheduled for June 2, after which it will operate twice a week, the HTZ added.

"The new Utair flight is the third one to connect Moscow and Split this year, which is an excellent opportunity for Dalmatia and the entire tourism sector to position themselves in the Russian market," HTZ director Kristjan Stanicic said.

In addition to Utair, Moscow-Split flights are also operated by the airlines Aeroloft and TUI Russia, which is launching charter flights for the first time this year.

This year there are also routes connecting Moscow with Zagreb and Pula, and there is a service connecting Zagreb with Saint Petersburg.
