My parter and I intend going from London to Thailand this Summer (August) and have found a good deal with Aeroflot (£512), which has a 1 1/2 hour stopover in Moscow.
I was wondering if it is possible to extend the time in Moscow to 2-3 days? Is this usual or will the airline insist we leave Moscow on the next available flight?

Many thanks for any advice received!

hi emailrw

i'm also in the plannning stages for my next travel adventure, but from i learned so far, if you know how long you want to stay in Moscow you could either make it two seperate flights and just book them that way

the other option is to get open-dated tickets, which gives you the freedom to leave moscow whenever you want

you should know that open-dated tickets do not guarantee you a seat on the next flight, so if the flight is booked solid, you have to wait

i'm sure some of the more seasoned travelers on this site can give you more advice

With most airlines it's indeed possible to break your trip, but of course I am not sure about Aeroflot. But as you have a good deal, if you stay in Moscow that will be about 50 pound for a visa and for Russia you need to book all your hotel nights in front. If you don't want to book accomodation, that's possible (business or personal visa) but that's 130 pound for the visa!.
