  • cancellation or delay of the flight specified in the ticket;
  • the aircraft’s failure to land at the airport specified in the ticket;
  • the passenger’s failure to depart due to impossibility to provide for him/her a seat on the flight and date specified in the ticket;

All passenger handling expenses, including deportation in case of refusal of further carriage on the receiving AIRLINE’S flight or refusal of transit by the law-enforcement bodies of the Russian Federation for improperly issued documents, shall be borne by the delivering AIRLINE, provided the carriage has begun.


Choice of the date and time of departure


If the airport of your city does not offer the destination needed or the timetable is not convenient for you, you can always sel ect an optimal transfer carriage via Koltsovo Airport on the day and at the time suitable for you.

Koltsovo Airport is Russia’s largest regional airport. It offers flights to more than 80 destinations. At the same time, it is well connected by overland transport with neighboring cities: Chelyabinsk, Perm, Tyumen, Nizhny Tagil, Kurgan and others.

Lower Fares

Even if the airport of your city does offer a direct flight, the total fare of a transfer carriage via Ekaterinburg may be lower.

Airlines work to attract more passengers, and offer special through fares for transfer carriages.

Trips at such through fares can be booked at any air ticket office in Russia and the CIS countries. To do so, ask the ticket agent to sell you the full transfer trip (fr om your point of departure via Ekaterinburg to the final destination) under a single TKP ticket (TKP means the Transport Clearing House of Russia and CIS).

Koltsovo Makes it Closer and Quicker

Ekaterinburg operates in any weather: its modern runways and navigation systems make it practically independent of weather conditions and handle flights rain or shine.

Special transfer procedures and quality service at the airport

The airport provides passengers with a high level of security and safety, a comfortable environment and a high-quality service. Transfer passengers are serviced in dedicated facilities, where they do not need to receive their baggage or go through all preflight formalities.
