Greetings from Vitaly Saveliev, General Director of PJSC "Aeroflot – Russian Airlines"
Welcome aboard this Aeroflot aircraft.
Our airline has switched over to the winter schedule. In the new season, Aeroflot will operate flights to 149 destinations in 53 countries, while the Aeroflot Group airlines will serve 298 destinations in 56 countries.
For this winter’s schedule, we have considerably increased the number of flights to the popular tourist destinations of Dubai, Bangkok, and Phuket. We have not, of course, overlooked the cities of our own vast country: for the winter season, we have increased the frequency of flights to Saint Petersburg, Krasnoyarsk, Rostov-on-Don, and Ekaterinburg. From the start of the season, Aeroflot will offer a daily flight from Moscow to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, to complement the regular flight operated by our subsidiary, Rossiya Airlines.
Our passengers will always find only the highest service quality aboard our flights. Our top quality standards are reflected in the numerous awards that Aeroflot consistently receives. Among our latest accolades is the title of the Best Airline in Eastern Europe received from the influential British magazine Business Traveller. This popular international publication focused on premium-class travel has been presenting awards for over 30 years, recognising the world’s best airlines for their service quality. Aeroflot received the title for the second year in a row: the fair and impartial assessment of our airline by both independent experts and passengers offers yet more indisputable proof that our company is back in the global civil aviation elite.
Millions of travellers have had the opportunity to appreciate Aeroflot’s other strengths, including our vast transit opportunities, simple and client-friendly departure procedures, good value-to-money, operational reliability, and, of course, punctuality. We value the time of our passengers as our own, and we’ll go the extra mile to ensure that each Aeroflot flight takes off strictly on time. This is hard work, and it requires the seamless and coordinated effort from our whole team.
Thanks to the expertise of Aeroflot’s staff, the company has yielded some very impressive results: for several past months, Aeroflot has been setting the pace in terms of on-time performance among its main international competitors. According to OAG, the UK-based provider of global travel data and insight, this September, Aeroflot operated 89.2% of its flights on schedule, which made it the most punctual company among world’s 20 largest airlines.
I’d also like to point out that this summer, Aeroflot received OAG’s highest on-time performance rating of five stars. Our company is constantly improving its performance every month. Our steady growth is a testament to the efficiency of the steps we have taken, such as the strict implementation of boarding regulations. In the future, we plan to implement new, digital solutions, including biometric controls that will significantly streamline and speed up check in and boarding procedures.
Fly Aeroflot – the company that keeps up with the times!

In the November issue of Aeroflot magazine we will tell our readers about the most interesting sporting and cultural events of the upcoming month, as well as new books and films.
Pianist Nikolai Lugansky tells what questions he would have asked Sergei Rachmaninoff if he could, director Anna Parmas reveals that she once wanted to run away from the premiere party of her own movie, and author Guzel Yakhina explains why she is at her most productive when staying on an island in the middle of the Baltic Sea.
The Travel Section will help you locate the lighthouse with the highest elevation in the world, see everything the Russian North has to offer, plan a ski and gastronomic tour of the slopes of Trentino, and learn why the traffic light of the Ural Industrial Biennial has only the green, as well as how to evade the long ski lift lines in Krasnaya Polyana, what Portuguese monks greased their clothes irons with egg whites for, and how Gabrielle Chanel got her nickname ‘Coco’ in the spa resort town of Vichy.
A ‘literary’ menu based on works by Nikolai Gogol, a gourmet set inspired by the dinner Konstantin Levin had with Stepan Oblonsky in Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina”, a tour of Moscow’s historic neighborhood complete with a tasting of old Moscow-style pies: foodies no longer have to decide between bread and circuses. Read our review to find the most memorable gourmet events in Moscow.
The Reading Section features an excerpt from “A Year with No Summer” by Irina Letyagina who tells how to live one’s own life instead of following in the footsteps of others – by quitting a fancy job, pushing one’s way out of the comfort zone, and going off on a journey with no return ticket.

November is not the most welcoming month of the year, but the sparkling gems in the traditional review of high jewelry collections published in the new issue of the Aeroflot Premium magazine make up for the lack of sunlight. If the carats and skills of the great jewellers leave you cold, then check out the selection of the best hotels in the Maldives in the Best of the Best section: sunshine and water treatments are the best remedy for autumnal blues.
As always, the issue is packed full of the most important cultural events of the month, news of hotels and restaurants, car premieres and amazing gadgets, the most significant auction sales and the most binge-worthy books. Among the special articles in November are the critical rethinking of the role of fashion in a historical context in the Art section, the most remote and blisteringly hot Moorish Spain in the Travel section and the delightful landscapes of Scottish highlands in our Photo Report.
Foreign readers of Aeroflot Premium are presented with a selection of features and reports in English.

With the growth of ecological consciousness in the world, fashion brands are going all out to sell themselves to millennials and generation Z, as we discuss in the November issue of Aeroflot STYLE.
Mindful consumption also provides the subject for our Fashion feature. Incidentally, things made from artificial leather and fur and clothes using high-tech fabrics will be one of the strongest trends in the coming cold season. Checks, massive brutal shoes, and tops with provocative slogans will also be at the peak of fashion.
This month’s Personalities section includes interviews with architects from current limelight-stealer Hesselbrand on principles for building hotels today and on the ecologically responsible approach to this process. Other personalities in our November issue are the actress Kristen Stewart and the singer Dua Lipa.
Our Beauty section includes a guide to spa hotels for restoring to good order both your body and your soul. However, you don’t have to put the spa rituals off until your next holiday: this month, our experts suggest how to look after your skin during the cold season, what detox products to use, and what seasonal scents will put you in the perfect mood.
I wish you pleasant reading during your flight!

The new autumn issue of Aeroflot magazine offers its readers a chance to view the surrounding country, with Best of Russia dedicated to selecting the most advantageous position to do this — for example, some of the most famous viewing platforms in Russia. No less spectacular views open from the high banks of the river Vologda, famous for its fishing and salt mining, where our photojournalist went to greet the golden autumn. And from there it is not far to the Arkhangelsk region, where since ancient times Kargopol clay toys have been produced.
In order to refresh the feelings and warm up a little, we suggest to set course to Krasnodar Territory, where the grapes are right now being harvested and people are thinking about the future of the wine industry in Russia. If you only plan a short business trip to one of the capitals, find time for a walk on Red Square in Moscow and Vasilevsky Island in St. Petersburg. And be sure to return to Russia!
