A new airline will start flying from Singapore Changi Airport in October this year, as Russian carrier Aeroflot announced a five times weekly flight to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport from 25th October 2020, using its brand new Airbus A350-900 aircraft including closed-door suites in Business Class.
Aeroflot will operate this 11-hour non-stop service from Singapore every day except on Fridays and Sundays. Lunchtime departure at 12.30pm sees a 6.30pm touchdown in Moscow the same evening.
On the quicker 10 hour 15 minute flight from Moscow to Singapore, flights operate every day except on Thursdays and Saturdays, with 7.40pm departure for overnight service, landing into Changi just before 11am the following day.
From 25th October 2020

By comparison, Singapore Airlines’ five times weekly non-stop Moscow flights, which use the city’s Domodedovo Airport and also continue to Stockholm, offer overnight service in both directions.
Fun fact: This is actually a service resumption for Aeroflot. The carrier was flying three times weekly flights to Moscow from Changi Airport in the mid-1980s, via either Bombay or Delhi, using four-engined Ilyushin IL-62s.
