Greetings from Vitaly Saveliev, General Director of PJSC "Aeroflot – Russian Airlines"
Welcome on board this Aeroflot aircraft.
May is upon us, bringing with it warmer weather and brighter spirits. But May is also a time of remembrance. On May 9 this year Russia marks the 72nd anniversary of the end of the Great Patriotic War generally known as the Eastern Front of World War II.
It is a day of pride for Russians, who succeeded in defending the country in its darkest hours. It is a day when we mourn those who fell on the battlefield. And it is a day of joy when we give thanks for the soldiers and their unparalleled acts of bravery.
Civilian pilots fought on all fronts. They supported airlifting during the Siege of Leningrad, operated flights across the front line to assist the partisan movement, and flew lend-lease planes between Alaska and Siberia.
There were true heroics from civil aviation pilots working in the home front, too. As men left to fight on the front lines, many posts were taken up by women, continuing the important job of transportation on the home front.
Between 1941 and 1945, civilian pilots carried out 1.5 million air missions, including many deep behind enemy lines. Some 579 pilots and 487 flight crew members and others working in civil aviation gave their lives during the war. The contribution of civilian aviators was highly appreciated by the Supreme Command and the government. Many thousands were given military awards, and 15 pilots from the home front section of the Civil Air Fleet were awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union — the country’s highest military decoration — for their courage and heroism.
I extend my best wishes to our passengers on this important day. Let us remember together all those who have valiantly defended the skies above our countries.
Today, our highly skilled pilots and flight attendants are here to make your trip as comfortable, safe and punctual as possible. We hope you will enjoy the flight.
Your thoughts and opinions are very important to us. I will be glad to answer your questions by email email@example.com.
Aeroflot – Russian Airlines
One of the most valuable things in life is travel. Our planet is full of awe-inspiring and unforgettable places, but exploring some can take longer than others. Russia is one of them. Thanks to Aeroflot Russian Airlines foreigners and Russians alike can journey to the remote far reaches of the largest country in the world at the drop of a hat. What’s more, AEROFLOT magazine — written for English-speaking passengers — presents Russia in all its glory with love, knowledge, and pride.
The cover of every issue is adorned in the style of a traditional Russian pattern from areas like the Caucuses, Urals, Siberia, and further afield. Designs from iconic styles like Gzhel, Palekh, and Khokhloma are unmistakably Russian, showcasing the country’s customs and heritage. Each issue also explains its chosen cover, its masters, and history.
Aeroflot has one of the world’s youngest fleets, but we also want to honour the past so our aircraft are named after Russians who have etched their names into the history books. The magazine’s “Celestial names” section is dedicated to brilliant Russian scientists, inventors, artists, writers, and directors who helped shape the country. Poet Boris Pasternak is honoured in the first issue.
