During the summer season, group airlines were offering new travel destinations to passengers. In addition to regular flights to Antalya, flights to Dalaman were added in July for those who enjoy vacationing in Turkey. This destination allows for easy access to popular resorts of Marmaris and Fethiye. Furthermore, July saw an increase in flight frequency to Simferopol and Krasnodar—popular southern cities for summer travel.
S7 group airlines continue to offer new services to passengers that allow for the most comfortable travel experience. In July, a test run of a facial recognition system was started in the business lounge of Domodedovo Airport’s domestic departure area.
The system allows passengers to enter the business lounge without presenting a boarding pass. Cameras installed at the entrance automatically take a picture, triggering a notification on the business lounge administrator’s screen with the passenger’s first and last name, flight number, and business lounge access privileges. To find out his or her flight status, a passenger can simply walk up to a flight schedule screen, which will then automatically highlight the relevant flight information.
