Health and Travel Alert – U.S. Mission Russia (April 14, 2020)

Location:  Russia, country-wide

Event:  Confirmed Aeroflot Flight to the United States at 14:15 Today

Aeroflot has just informed U.S. Mission Russia that the airline will run a commercial flight to New York-JFK airport at 14:15 (2:15 p.m.) today, April 14.  All tickets must be purchased directly from Aeroflot’s website or their ticketing counter.  Please direct all questions to Aeroflot.  The U.S. Embassy is not involved in the selection of passengers for this flight.

Future Aeroflot flights are likely to be announced on short notice, with limited time to purchase tickets and check in at the airport.  Given this unpredictability, the Embassy may not be able to provide advance notification of flights to our U.S. citizen community.  For those who wish to depart Russia, we strongly recommend checking Aeroflot’s website regularly for flight availability.

There are press reports of possible future flights on Aeroflot to London and Amsterdam, in addition to New York.  We will update the U.S. citizen community as more information becomes available.  If you learn of an outgoing flight, please do alert us at so that we may share the information as widely as possible.

Continued Communication: Also, please continue to monitor our website and ensure you are enrolled in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).   We will issue Health and Travel alerts on a regular basis and email you directly when we have additional information regarding charter flights.  In case of emergency, please reach out to us via the following points of contact – Emergency Contact List.
