It may be the most desirable destination on the planet among football fans at the moment, but Russia is certain to see even more tourists from the UAE from October when Emirates increases its daily services between Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport and Dubai International to three.

The airline has been serving the Russian market since 2003 and already flies twice daily to Domodedovo, and daily to St Petersburg.

The additional Domodedovo flight, which is to be serviced by an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER, will take off from October 25, 2018. The aircraft can carry 360 passengers - eight in First Class, 42 in Business and 310 in Economy.

It will depart Domodedovo at 10.40am and arrive in Dubai at 4.55pm, while the return flight will depart Dubai at 3.30am and arrive in Moscow at 7.50am, but it’s worth noting there will be a 30-minute increase during winter (from October 28).
