Aeroflot Holds "Professions of Aeroflot" InstaMeet

7 February 2017, Moscow.Aeroflot has held an InstaMeet with popular Russian Instagrammers to showcase the work of the airline’s staff – the people who work hard to ensure the highest levels of safety, comfort and service on all our flights.

As part of the “Aeroflot Professions” InstaMeet, Russian Instagrammers had the opportunity to visit the work space of 10 Aeroflot staff.

The InstaMeet was organised by Ekaterina Mishchenkova, a leading Instagrammer and member of the Russian Union of Art Photographers.

“My fellow Instagrammers and I were interested in meeting the Aeroflot staff responsible for passengers’ comfort and safety. The staff we met may have different hobbies and habits, but they all share same passion for their work, years of experience and great competency. This is what makes Aeroflot Europe’s best airline in terms of quality both on the ground and up in the air”, Ekaterina Mishchenkova said.

Aeroflot means a modern fleet, outstanding service, the latest digital technologies and above all professional staff. Aeroflot employs 21 thousand people. It is impossible to tell all of their stories, but this project gives passengers an opportunity to learn more about professions which ensure flight safety and comfort. You can see photos and videos devoted to the project on Instagram with the #AeroflotProfessions hashtag.
