EasyJet is to suspend flights between London and Moscow, blaming a slump in demand.

Flights from Gatwick will halt on March 21, while the airline saying it will continue to monitor the situation with a view to resuming the service should demand pick up..

“The decision has been taken in response to the significant and sustained reduction in demand,” the airline reportedly said on Friday.

EasyJet has been flying to Moscow from Gatwick since 2012 after being awarded route rights ahead of Virgin Atlantic.

Only two carriers from the UK and two from Russia permitted to fly between London and Moscow under air-service agreements.

British Airways also serves Moscow, while Aeroflot and Transaero Airlines hold reciprocal rights.
