Aeroflot In-Flight Menu, Moscow Olympics 1980
Russian airline Aeroflot was founded in 1923, making it one of the oldest airlines in the world. It flies to 146 destinations in 52 countries.
From its inception to the early 1990s, Aeroflot was the flag carrier and a state-owned enterprise of the Soviet Union (USSR). During this time, Aeroflot grew its fleet to over five thousand domestically-manufactured aircraft and expanded to operate a domestic and international flight network of over three thousand destinations throughout the Soviet Union and the globe, making it also the airline the largest in the world at the time.
This menu cover is from 1980 and the interior has an image of Misha the mascot of the troubled 1980 Olympics. Some 65 countries, including the United States, boycotted the Summer Olympics as a protest against the 1979 Russian invasion of Afghanistan.
Sadly, we don’t yet have an interior menu for this item.
