On Monday (January 4, 2021), Azimuth Airlines announced the launch of service between St. Petersburg and Kaluga. The inaugural flight took place on Sunday January 3, 2021 and guests in both directions received a free certificate for a future flight as a gift from the airline. The first passenger on the flight from St. Petersburg to Kaluga was Marina Polyakova, the Department Head of a children’s clothing manufacturer. Commenting on the inaugural service and free flight certificate, Mrs. Polyakova, said,
“This is my first flight with the Azimuth Airlines, until today I haven't flown for a long time. The flight was wonderful. I haven't decided yet where to fly with the certificate. But most likely it will be in the spring, closer to the vacations. Anyway, we will choose the direction with the whole family.”
On the flight from Kaluga to St. Petersburg the first passenger was Mikhail Bologan, who stated,
“The first thing I pay attention to is the distance between the rows of seats. And today I was pleasantly surprised by the level of comfort on board. It's comfortable to fly even longer distances in such a spacious cabin. I have not yet chosen where I will fly with the certificate, but the variety of routes pleases me.”
Flights on the route (A4638/A4637) will be operated four times weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays with the departure from St. Petersburg at 13:40 and arrival in Kaluga at 15:15. The return flight departs Kaluga at 16:15 and lands in St. Petersburg at 17:50 (all times local).
