Aeroflot adds long-haul capacity with new 777-300ER

Moscow, 12 May, 2015. — Aeroflot (Moscow Exchange ticker: AFLT) has taken delivery of a new factory-direct Boeing 777-300ER.

The latest addition to its fleet further expands Aeroflot’s capacity on long-haul routes to such destinations as (but not limited to) Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo, New York, Los Angeles, from its base at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport, a fast-growing hub for East-West transit traffic.

The new 777-300ER is configured with Business Class, Economy Class and Comfort Class cabins. The new aircraft, which has been named after the early 20th century lyrical poet Sergei Esenin, comes with Boeing’s spacious Signature Interior, which includes large overhead compartments and has deservedly proven popular with passengers. It is also equipped with Boeing’s Airplane Health Management system.

Passengers flying Comfort Class enjoy a premium-class service at highly competitive prices, with features including additional legroom and baggage allowance, an upgraded menu and more Aeroflot Bonus miles, and a warm Russian welcome and award-winning in-flight service from Aeroflot’s stylish English-speaking crew.

Aeroflot has the youngest fleet of any major carrier worldwide. Russia’s flagship carrier was named the world’s most punctual airline by Flightstats twice in 2014.
