January 26, 2011, Moscow – On the New-Year eve, a special lottery was held on five Aeroflot flights.
On flights SU205 to Istanbul, SU551 and SU553 to Bangkok, SU587 to Denpasar, and SU581 to Tokyo, 18 certificates for free economy-class round trips were drawn. The list of winners includes passengers from Russia and Belarus, a passenger from Philippines, and two passengers from Japan.
This event, which created a festival atmosphere on board, was highly appreciated by passengers. Various lotteries and distributions of gifts and souvenirs to passengers on New Year eve on board or in airports constitute an old Aeroflot's tradition.
