Greetings from Vitaly Saveliev, General Director of PJSC "Aeroflot – Russian Airlines"
Welcome aboard this flight operated by Aeroflot, the leading customer service company among Russian brands.
Our company was awarded this status based on a rating by KPMG. The 150-year-old audit firm conducted a study in Russia with the title “The power of the personal touch: 100 brands with the Best Customer Experience.” Aeroflot took eighth place and was the only Russian company in the top 10. KPMG highlighted our young fleet, flight safety, passenger service and our convenient and extensive route network.
The calendar may only be showing April, but for our airline summer is already here. Aeroflot has switched to its new flight schedule, which will run until October 26.
Russian domestic routes will be the focus of our attention this summer. Aeroflot will launch two new routes – Krasnodar to Simferopol, and Volgograd to Sochi. Our daily flights to these destinations will connect the regions direct, bypassing the capital. Furthermore, Aeroflot will continue to fly between two major resorts, Simferopol and Sochi. We are fulfilling an important task by launching new direct flights between the regions, bypassing Moscow.
The Black Sea coast is a popular holiday destination. Our goal is to meet the high demand for flights to Russian resorts. Aeroflot has planned an intense flight programme from Moscow to Simferopol (12 flights per day) and to Sochi (11 flights per day). We will also add the usual summer flight to Gelendzhik (three times per day) and significantly increase the frequency of flights to Anapa (up to five per day).
The summer schedule will also be good news for those who like the Mediterranean coast.
On June 1, Aeroflot will launch flights to two new destinations – Palma de Mallorca and Marseille. We will offer flights to the largest city in the Balearic Islands four times a week, while there will be five flights per week to Marseille, the second largest city in France and the capital of Provence.
We are not only launching new routes but also maintaining our old ones. Aeroflot will keep flights to Heraklion and Split in the summer schedule. The frequency of flights on many international routes will increase compared to the winter schedule, for example from Moscow to Antalya, Athens, Burgas, Larnaca, Malaga, Nice, Thessaloniki and Tivat.
Resort destinations are important, but they are not the sole focus of our summer schedule. Also important is increasing transit traffic between continents. We have increased the frequency of our Moscow-Beijing flights to three per day, as usual for the summer season. From June 2, two flights per day will be scheduled to Seoul. This will help to strengthen our position in the Europe-Asia transit market, where Aeroflot has indisputable advantages over its foreign competitors.
We are continuing to develop transport links between Rus-sian cities, and in the summer we will increase the frequency of a number of routes from Moscow, such as those to Izhevsk, Kaliningrad, Mineralnye Vody, Nizhny Novgorod, Saratov and Ulyanovsk.
In the new season, our airline will offer flights to 159 destinations across 54 countries, including Russia.
Wherever you wish to go, we can take you there comfortably and safely. Fly with Aeroflot! Feel free to send any suggestions or feedback to my personal email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow me: twitter.com/v_saveliev.
Aeroflot – Russian Airlines
The heart of the Russian man is laden with song: folksy, hearty, maternal, full of thoughts and heroic worries, tenderness and longing – love. The song as a continuation of breath, the song as an expression of the most secret feelings and hopes. In spring, the Russian song takes on a special sound. And so our latest issue of Aeroflot magazine for foreign passengers turned out to be very melodic. Listen closely: in the lilac gardens of Suzdal a Nightingale warbles, over the Tuvan steppe can be heard the throat singing shamans and elders, over the Volga, captured by the artist Ilya Repin, thunders Dubinushka and in festive Moscow, welcoming the main parade on Red Square, a victorious “Hurrah!” bursts from the crowd three times.
Discover the songs of Russia together with Aeroflot!

In the middle of the last century, Western transcendentalists named freedom of creativity, freedom of movement and freedom of expression as life's main values. To look at the world around and never cease to be surprised, to strive forward and back away from thinking in absolutes...The romantics haven't lost any of their relevance today. Retrospection dominates modern fashion, design and literature. The new spring issue of Aeroflot Premium was born at the crossroads of cultural layers – with love for the past and hope for the future.
As always, the magazine presents a selection of the most interesting and anticipated events of the month, hotel news, restaurant premieres, the latest gadgets, notable books, the best jewellery and fashion brands. Among our featured articles in April is a detailed report on the Geneva motor show, a journey through the flowering steppe of Southern Kazakhstan, a look at the most famous duets in the domestic restaurant business and an attempt to glimpse the dark side of the moon in the Science section, in honour of World Aviation and Cosmonautics Day.
