Aeroflot has begun the first regularly scheduled flights between Moscow and Miami.

A Soviet jet arrived Sunday at Miami International Airport, the first time in 20 years Aeroflot had a scheduled passenger flight land in the United States outside of Washington, D.C., or New York, the Soviet national airline said.Under a treaty negotiated last year, Aeroflot will double its weekly departures from the United States this summer to 20. Included is a new, twice-a-week flight from Miami to Moscow via Shannon, Ireland.
