Universal launches flight-planning website for World Cup 2018

Universal Weather and Aviation has launched a planning website for the World Cup 2018 in Russia, with experts available for consultation at NBAA 2017.

The Universal 2018 Russia Would Cup resource center will be updated as information changes and will include details on permit requirements, flight planning details, visa considerations, airport information, NOTAMs, and information on securing third-party providers for fuel, handling, catering and security.

Dmitry Konovalov, general director at Universal Aviation Russia, said, “Operators should begin pre-planning for this event, as the increased traffic will limit services such as parking and hotels, and create delays at the airports themselves. Based on our experience with previous high-traffic events like the 2014 World Cup and the Sochi Winter Olympics, we anticipate NOTAMs will be issued 3-6 months prior to the event and slots will be allocated 2-3 weeks before the opening ceremony.

“In most cases, parking at primary airports will be permitted for a maximum of two hours. Be ready to relocate or plan on multiple flights. To help you avoid the risk and stress associated with traveling to such a high-traffic event, our Universal Aviation Russia team will be on the ground 24/7, providing supervision and personal assistance at all key airports throughout the country.”

Russia’s World Cup will take place from June 14 – July 15, 2018, located at 11 locations throughout the country. The opening ceremony and final match will take place in Moscow, and it’s estimated that three million visitors will attend the games and increase congestion at many airports.
