EasyJet is offering flights from London to Moscow for less than £120 return, starting on March 18.
Seats on the Gatwick went on sale today at a lead-in price of £47.49 outbound, £62.49 inbound. EasyJet's flights to Moscow from Manchester went on sale in November.
The airline will offer daily flights from Gatwick to start with, rising to twice daily in mid-April.
However, as most visitors to Russia require a visa before departure, the route is unlikely to attract many last-minute, impulsive bookings.
EasyJet warns that the visa application process can take several weeks. Tourists must have proof of hotel accommodation before being granted a visa, so they are advised to book their accommodation before their flights.
