Residents of Novosibirsk are now able to fly direct to Cyprus and Tokyo. We have also continued the ongoing renewal of our fleet of airliners: passengers of S7 Airlines were the first passengers in the country to experience the luxury of flying on the new Airbus A321neo”, says Igor Veretennikov, Commercial Director of the S7 Group.
In August, S7 Airlines introduced new status levels in its S7 Priority loyalty program: these allow participants to earn privileges after only their fourth flight. The Classic level now has four new status levels— Junior, Master, Expert and Top.
