About S7 Airlines

  S7 Airlines is Russia’s largest domestic air carrier, based at three major air transport hubs: Moscow (Domodedovo), Novosibirsk (Tolmachevo) and Irkutsk. It also operates regular flights to the countries of the CIS, Europe, Near East, South Asia and to countries in the Asia-Pacific region. 
  The airline’s history started in 1957, with the first civil flight from a military airport in Novosibirsk, by the Tolmachevo united air group; Siberia Airlines was based on that group. Since 2005 Siberian Airlines has operated under the brand S7 Airlines. S7 Airlines has one of the youngest and most modern fleets in the Russian air transport market. The average service life of the aircraft is eight years and all are foreign manufactured by Airbus and Boeing. The fleet consists of thirty-one aircraft: nineteen Airbus A319s, nine Airbus A320s, one Airbus A310 and two long-distance Boeing 767-300s. 
  S7 Airlines is a member of the Oneworld global alliance, world leader in providing quality service to air passengers. Oneworld brings together airlines from every continent, serving a total of 141 countries. With alliance membership, airlines can offer passengers many more services and benefits. S7 Airlines’ membership to Oneworld also ensures the airline’s compliance with international quality and safety standards. 
  Branches and representatives of S7 can be found in 37 cities in Russia, 13 cities in the CIS, and in 14 other cities worldwide, including Frankfurt-am-Maine (Germany), Beijing (China), Seoul (South Korea), Antalya (Turkey) and Bangkok (Thailand). S7 Airlines holds a leading position in the market for the provision of on-line services, allowing passengers to choose flights, reserve tickets, make payments and check in for flights through its website. In 2008 the airline changed over entirely to the use of e-ticket technology, and in 2009 launched the first among the Russian airlines mobile website at s7.ru. Then, in January 2011, the airline introduced the ‘mobile boarding pass’ service. The S7 Priority program enables frequent flyers to collect miles, and receive bonuses from S7 Airlines, other Oneworld members, and from other commercial partners. Since 2001 S7 Airlines has become a full-fledged member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA). In 2007, after a successful operational safety audit, the airline was included in the list of IOSA (IATA Operational Safety Audit) registered operators.
