Event Location : CHEBOKSARY, Russia
Tour Code: TFRUS1 / 2015
20 & 21 June 2015
The European Athletics Team Championships evolved from the 8 team Europa Cup to the new format with the top 12 European nations competing in a joint men and women’s competition.
The 2014 event is being held in the Russian provincial town of Cheboksary 660 km east of Moscow on the river Volga and our options are based upon flights to Russia via Moscow before connecting to domestic flights to Kazan or Cheboksary.
Our Registration Programme information is detailed here with our Final Tour Programme published early in 2015 based upon client interest. We are anticipating a smaller group than usually attends this event but we are working with the same agent that we used for our very successful Moscow 2013 World Championships programme.

FLIGHTS TO MOSCOW, KAZAN & CHEBOKSARY
The most direct flights to Kazan & Cheboksary are via Moscow. The only daily direct flights to Moscow are ex Heathrow with BAand from Gatwick with Easyjet. BA flights can be booked through to Kazan with One World partner carrier S7 / Siberian Airways. At the moment local carrier Rusline that flies to Cheboksary has not confirmed fares or schedules for next summer so connecting flights cannot currently be booked. The BA / S7 combination allows luggage to be checked through in transit via Moscow but the Easyjet flights do not have this advantage – luggage will need to be collected in Moscow and re-checked in for connecting flights.
Easyjet plus Rusline ex Gatwick to Cheboksary from £329
Easyjet plus S7 ex Gatwick to Kazan from £319
BA & S7 with through transit ex Heathrow to Kazan from £419
Prices are yet to be confirmed by the Local Organising Committee – a guide-line price of £40 for both days has been proposed.
