MOSCOW, July 31 (Reuters) - British Airways is expected to
resume flights to Russia on Aug. 2, Russia's Federal Air
Transport Agency said on Friday, as Russia plans to restart some
regular international flights on Saturday.
International flights were grounded on March 30 after the
imposition of lockdown measures to curb the spread of the
coronavirus, which has infected nearly 840,000 people in Russia.
The first regular flight by Russia's Aeroflot will
fly from Moscow to Istanbul on Saturday. Aeroflot also plans two
Moscow-London flights on Aug. 1.
