Travelled on business on their 737-500 which the magazine said was about 20 years old. Seats were no worse than any budget airline, announcements in English and Russian, and food and drink was served, free. Both flights were on time, so no complaints.

The flight was on time, the cabin crew friendly and helpful. The plane was clean and there was enough leg room. I didn`t like the 24h in advance online check-in policy.

We arrived 5 minutes late to gate close and lost the flight. We bought the next ticket at FULL price. But the issue does not start here. At return flight they made us buy another ticket at full price because they cancelled also our return flight. And nobody gave a care about it. So, my experience with this company can...

From Archangelsk to Solowetsk-Islands. Nothing fancy nor extra. A technical performance. They served tasty tomato-juice during the flight. Instead of 19 hours train and boat trip Nordavia took us in 50 minutes with 120 €, so not a bad deal. 100% Russian language, so be prepared to know at least something in Russian. A positive experience. The destination Solowetsk Island...

We took Nordavia flight from St. Petersburg to Tbilisi. We were a bit concerned because of all the negative reviews especially regarding legroom. We were in Russia for the world cup and decided to take a break from the hectic world cup vibe to relax in quieter Georgia. Nordavia was the only convenient option as Georgia Air had weird departure...

Very clean plane good connection time to DME Moscow from Orenburg Russia food poor but that was reflected in the price of the ticket and since it was less than 2 hour flight no great hardship.

I flew a flight Murmansk - Moscow - Murmansk. There is not much choice of airlines. Aeroflot tickets are a bit more expensive than the Nordavia, but you will fly by one plane. Little old planes, uncomfortable chairs, rumpled roll with greens and pack nut - that all my memories of the voyage.
