Algeria intends to raise the number of direct flights to Russia, the governor of the capital of Algiers, Mohamed Abdenur Rabehi, announced.
“We held talks with the head of a Russian airline to strengthen air traffic between Algeria and Moscow, as well as St. Petersburg,” RIA Novosti quoted Rabehi as saying.
He added that this step will allow Russians to use the Algiers airport for transit to Europe.
On a separate note, Russia's flagship airline Aeroflot has recently revealed that it is no longer offering in-flight film, television, and music streaming to passengers following Western sanctions and business withdrawals over the Kremlin’s military operation in Ukraine.
In a statement on its official Telegram channel, Aeroflot indicated that foreign companies had stopped providing streaming services to the airline.
Aeroflot said the disruption was “temporary” and encouraged passengers to do “a digital detox,” “take a nap” or “read a book” during flights. The company also added it was working “on a domestic solution.”
