Going, Going, Gone – the search for cheap flights to Moscow

The challenge of finding cheap flights to the Champion’s League final in Moscow awaits the fans of Manchester United and Chelsea after two exhilarating semis brought the first all England final.

With direct flights selling out fast and standard indirect options over £1000 plus, fans will have to be creative if they want to enjoy the historic night at the Luzhniki Stadium on May 21st.

With Skyscanner’s multihop search option, their dreams of an affordable trip could be a reality. Offering the ability to combine flights from different low cost airlines with a single click, Skyscanner can identify a number of unusual options for reaching your destination – if you are willing to take a slightly longer route.

Our current league of champion prices is as follows.

For the truly adventurous, why not incorporate other modes of transport? Overnight first class sleeper train tickets from Tallinn to Moscow are advertised at £121 or there are bus services from £10 for the 5 hour journey. An overnight stay is required in the in the Estonian capital but with a 3 star hotel costing £32, this makes this an affordable option. It also allows a day on the outbound leg and a half day on the return leg to explore the Medieval city centre (and the fruit ciders which I can recommend) while you wait for your connections.

From Dates Accommodation required Return price
London 19-23 May 1 night Tallinn + 1 night Moscow + train/bus £203.94
Glasgow 19-23 May 1 night Tallinn + 1 night Moscow + train/bus £298.54

As Douglas Adams said “I might not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be.” With Skyscanner’s help, you just might!
