Hi,
Just found out through very helpful RR representative that I can travel to Moscow as the spouse of a Russian national, as long as I have valid visa, marriage certificate (original) and I am met at the airport by my spouse. But you guessed it no official flights . Is anyone aware of any flights from anywhere including how to find out about possible repatriation flights? Not seen Mrs. H-M for 4 months now!
Thanks in anticipation.
Grahamski.

That's correct, however, Russian airspace is totally closed at this time, and the word from a contact in Aeroflot is that it may remain closed until very late June/beginning of July..

Also, should you be able to enter the country at this time, quarantine rules may still apply.

Flights are virtually nil, even post from the UK is taking twice as long to leave Heathrow, Aeroflot apparently fly in/out once every 7/10 days or so bringing the mail with them, but no passengers as I understand..
