Russian airline Aeroflot is closing its London Gatwick service, launched in 2016.

From the start of the Summer timetable on 25th March, it will add a 5th daily Heathrow frequency instead, departing at 17.15 to Moscow Sheremetyevo.  It isn’t clear where Aeroflot obtained the Heathrow slots.

Aeroflot moves to Heathrow from London Gatwick

If you are heading to Moscow, note that Aeroflot often runs an Airbus A330 on its 13.30 departure from Heathrow.

This has angled lie-flat seating. British Airways often uses a long-haul plane on one daily departure although this tends to change on a regular basis – others tend to use the old ex-BMI A321 aircraft which do have lie-flat seats.
