Greetings from Vitaly Saveliev, General Director of PJSC "Aeroflot – Russian Airlines"
Welcome on board this Aeroflot aircraft!
In February, Russia celebrates Civil Aviation Workers’ Day, which honours all those who have worked — past and present — in the country’s aviation industry. The day marks the establishment of a national civil aviation sector in 1923, and also reminds us of its eventful history and the new heights we are achieving today.
It is a particularly important day for Aeroflot, which was previously the umbrella organisation for the entire national civil aviation fleet of the world’s biggest country, and today Aeroflot is Russia’s leading airline and the flag carrier of Aeroflot Group, Russia’s largest airline group.
Civil Aviation Workers’ Day not only reminds us of this glorious past, but also of our ambitious plans for the future. In Russia Aeroflot has a unique role as the national carrier, one that is working to improve transport accessibility and setting standards for the whole industry.
Aeroflot works in constant dialogue with the state to ensure that Russian civil aviation is supplied with qualified staff, as well as the latest aviation technology.
Our airline has throughout its history worked closely with Russia’s leading educational institutions on training flight crews for the industry. These include St Petersburg State University of Civil Aviation, Ulyanovsk Institute of Civil Aviation, Buguruslan Civil Aviation Flight Academy and Sasovo Civil Aviation Flight Academy.
An example of how this collaboration is evolving is the agreement that Aeroflot has signed with Krasnokutsk Civil Aviation Training Academy to offer guaranteed employment to the Academy’s outstanding graduates. One condition of the agreement is that students should be trained on the aircraft that Aeroflot operates. This means Aeroflot will receive almost fully trained and qualified pilots able to confidently operate the very latest aircraft.
Aeroflot also held the “Best in the Sky” competition to find the best future pilots of the Russian-made Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft among the students of a number of training establishments. This contest is unique in Russia, and showed off the strengths of Russia’s most contemporary aircraft, as well as of the students who are training to fly it as future civil aviation pilots.
Our airline is the world’s largest operator of Sukhoi Superjet 100s, with 30 aircraft already in operation and plans to acquire a further 20. The growth strategy for Aeroflot’s fleet includes an increase in the share of Russian-built aircraft through contracts for 50 SSJ 100s and 50 MC-21s, which constitute yet another high-potential aircraft. Our fleet includes some of the safest aircraft produced by leading global manufacturers and is one of the youngest in the world.
Recently our track record has added a number of other, no less important achievements. Aeroflot ranked fourth in a rating of the world’s most highly digitalised airlines. Ahead of us are a number of IT projects, including some that use Big Data and will take our passenger service to a qualitatively new level.
Last year’s award of the coveted Four Star Airline status by Skytrax, the industry authority on airline service quality, represented a genuine breakthrough for Aeroflot.
For us, the ongoing strengthening of our market position in Russia and globally is not an end in itself. In the final analysis, everyone at Aeroflot — regardless of their position — works for you. We do everything we can to make every flight as comfortable and as punctual as possible, and to provide the highest level of care and attentiveness on the part of our crew.
Fly with Aeroflot — the leader of Russia’s civil aviation industry!
Your feedback is extremely important to us.
