Orthodox Church Leaks to Aviation

Religion, in particular – the Orthodox Church, is catching up Russian aviation: a new aircraft of the airline Kaliningrad Avia has been named after metropolitan Kirill, head of Church’s external affairs department of the Moscow Patriarchy.

On September 17 the medium haul plane Boeing 737-300 has started flights in the framework of the airline’s routes schedule. On September 26 metropolitan Kirill arrived to the Russian city of Kaliningrad with a pastoral visit and consecrated the aircraft that now bears the metropolitan’s name.

The airline Kaliningrad Avia carries out daily from Russia to Europe via the international airport Khabarovo in Kaliningrad.
