Greetings from Vitaly Saveliev, General Director of PJSC "Aeroflot – Russian Airlines"
Welcome aboard this Aeroflot aircraft.
On 25 March our airline switched over to the summer flight schedule. Aeroflot is proud to offer you the opportunity to travel to 146 destinations within Russia as well as to 51 countries around the world.
One of the key changes to our flight timetable this season is that we are relaunching service to Egypt, and from 11 April we will offer scheduled flights between Moscow and Cairo. New destinations are appearing on the route map for Russia and the CIS too, with flights to Saransk and Kyzylorda.
We are expanding opportunities for passengers to spend their holiday on the Black Sea. Now Aeroflot offers you the chance not only to unwind in Sochi or Crimea, but beginning in July we will launch daily service to Burgas, a top Bulgarian resort destination.
We have also taken into account the popularity of tourist travel to Italy, and are launching new destinations to the country. Catch Aeroflot’s daily flight to Naples to enjoy the Tyrrhenian Sea, plan excursions to Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii, or spend unforgettable evenings in the world’s oldest opera house, Teatro di San Carlo.
Romance imbues the ancient streets of Verona, where we will begin daily service from Moscow. Here you will find the real-life backdrop to the love story of Romeo and Juliet, sites that have long become pilgrimage destinations for Shakespeare aficionados.
In addition to offering new routes, we’re increasing the frequency of flights to a number of domestic and international destinations. Among the Russian destinations that will see increased service are Kaliningrad, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Perm, Krasnoyarsk, and Novosibirsk.
And this summer we will also increase flight frequencies to summer sun destinations like Antalya and Barcelona, as well as to European capitals Athens, Budapest, Bucharest, and Madrid.
Aeroflot’s network is complemented by the flights of our subsidiary airlines — Rossiya, Aurora and Pobeda, Russia’s first low-cost airline. Aeroflot Group’s total summer network covers 305 routes to 53 countries.
Thanks to code-sharing agreements set up with partner airlines, flights operating under Aeroflot’s SU code will now fly to 19 new countries: Albania, Algeria, Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cambodia, Ghana, Indonesia, Ireland, Iceland, Kenya, Luxembourg, Malta, Macedonia, Morocco, Myanmar, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia, and Tunisia.
Taking into account agreements with partner airlines, Aeroflot Group will fly a total of 491 routes to 72 countries, including Russia. Aeroflot and the whole of Russia are busy preparing for the main event of the summer — the World Cup. Our airline is ready to provide transportation for the teams, as well as fans from around the world.
With you in mind, we are constantly working to improve our service offerings — making the entertainment system more convenient, supplementing our extensive movie collection with the latest international releases, adding new items to our in-flight menus, and rolling out digital technologies to improve every aspect of your journey.
We are doing everything we can so that you enjoy your flight today.

Poppies glow crimson, bells tinkle, cornflowers gleam blue as the summer sky, and delicate daisies open up towards the sun on the cover of the new spring issue of Aeroflot’s in-flight magazine. The Zhostovo bouquet is enormous, luxuriant, festive, and does not resemble a real Russian garden, but it conveys the full imaginative powers of the craftsman behind it. The flowers on the famous Zhostovo trays are not real, but treasures of the Garden of Eden, which shine like jewels and live for eternity. This issue’s main feature is about the amazing story of Zhostovo folk art.
This spring, Aeroflot also offers readers the chance to discover Russia’s most stunning beaches, travel to places full of adventure, like Kamchatka, Lake Baikal, and the Putorana Plateau, sample Russian grain dishes, and learn about the most unusual souvenirs, which one may bring home from Russia.

In the April 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.

This time, we present our mini-guides to the monumental Volgograd, space-age Samara, and the cozy Saransk.

Care to learn more about the skills of Moscow’s chefs? Our review will point you towards the establishments that serve the most impressive tasting sets.
Our Reading section features an excerpt from “A Compromise between Life and Death. Sergei Dovlatov in Tallinn and Other Encounters” by Jelena Skulskaja.

The philosopher Immanuel Kant said: “Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me”. These words are wonderfully in tune with the themes we cover in April’s issue of Aeroflot Premium: perception, the power of personality, and the star-spangled sky. As usual, in this issue we bring you a selection of the month’s most interesting and eagerly anticipated events, hotel news, restaurant openings, reviews of the latest technology and gadgets, important books, and the best watches and fashion.
Special features in this issue include: reviews of two of Switzerland’s most important showrooms — one for cars in Geneva and another for watches in Basel; our Travel feature on the thriving, undiscovered parts of Sicily; our Best of the Best feature on famous fortresses and castles which have been turned into hotels; and “Lights from Heaven”, a set of unique photographs taken at night by astrophotographer Yuri Zvezdny. In the spirit of April Fools’ Day, our feature “Guests from Outer Space” lists the top ten best places to meet aliens.
Foreign readers of Aeroflot Premium may enjoy a range of features and opinion pieces in English.

“In the young month of April” we naturally want to prove to ourselves and the entire world that winter has not broken us and we’re now ready for fundamental renewal. In this issue of Aeroflot STYLE we call for change and decisive action. The heights of fashion are occupied by street trends such as demonstrative rock, funсtional denim, provocative punk, and bright lacquered leather. Our analytical piece asks why denim has endured so well as a fabric for more than 100 years.
Our Beauty section investigates yellow as this season’s principal colour and looks at new perfumes, how to take good care of your face (for which there’s no better time than spring), and the most effective health programmes offered by thermal resorts in Europe.
This issue’s main personalities include the strong and beautiful Rooney Mara, Renata Litvinova, and still very young (but no less promising for that) Millie Bobby Brown.
In this April’s issue we are again ready to delight our readers with a separate section devoted to children. This time we look at the most interesting children’s museums in the world, the most beautiful family resorts, and, of course, the latest clothes for young trendsetters.
