Siberia Airlines passengers can measure their baggage using an iPhone

16.08.2019

Siberia Airlines has updated its iOS app with a baggage measuring function1. There is no need to look for a special frame at the airport to check the size of your carry-on anymore. All you need to do now is launch the app and quickly scan your bag or your suitcase.

The carry-on baggage must weigh no more than 10 kg and measure no more than 55×40×23 cm to be allowed in the cabin of an aircraft. To check the size of your suitcase, you will need to access the “Measure luggage” section of the S7 app. Detailed instructions will appear on the screen. Once you’ve made sure the space around your suitcase is free, press the “Start checking” button and hold it down as you move your iPhone around the bag or the suitcase.

After the scan is complete, the size of the baggage will appear on the screen. The app will compare it to the regular baggage allowance and display a notification on the screen indicating whether it it possible to take the bag into the cabin or if it needs to be checked.

If the dimensions do not exceed the baggage allowance, the screen will show, “The baggage is good to go.” If the dimensions do not meet the requirements, the app will display a warning about the suitcase not being suitable for transportation on an aircraft.

Airplane tickets can be purchased on the www.s7.ru website, through iPhone and Android apps, and at any sales office. For more information about flights as well as ticket bookings and purchases, please contact the airline’s contact center at 8-800-700-07-07 (toll free across Russia).

Siberia Airlines was registered on May 6, 1992. Over the past 27 years, it has evolved from a small regional air transport operator with just a few aircraft in the fleet into a world-renowned airline with a modern fleet of more than 100 aircraft and a level of services that is recognized by global leaders in the business.

Siberia Airlines began its history with the development of a destination network in the Siberian region; in the mid-90s, the first regular international flights were opened, including flights to Germany and China. In 1998, new offices were opened in Barnaul, Kemerovo, Tomsk, Novokuznetsk and Irkutsk in order to make the internal network better.

After establishing in the base airport of Tolmachevo and some regional airports, Siberia Airlines started to develop a destination network from Moscow in 2001. In 2002, Moscow Domodedovo Airport became the airline’s base airport.

In 2005, the international Landor Associates company developed a new corporate identity and the S7 Airlines trademark for the company. Since 2006, the airline’s planes are easily recognized at any airport in the world by their bright green livery inspired by the corporate colors.

In 2007, after successfully passing the whole international audit procedure for compliance with the operational safety standards, the airline was included in the IOSA (IATA Operational Safety Audit) operator registry.

In 2010, the airline became a full member of the oneworld global airline alliance, bringing together 13 of the largest and best airlines from all over the world. Together with its alliance partners, Siberia Airlines offers its passengers flights to more than 1,000 destinations in 150 countries of the world. Joining the leading airline alliance has confirmed that the level of personnel training, and safety and service standards offered by the airline comply with the highest industry standards.

Today, Siberia Airlines is one of the three best airlines in Eastern Europe according to the prestigious international Skytrax rating and the chart of top 100 of the best airlines in the world; it is the most punctual Russian airline, ranking sixth in the European OAG Punctuality League 2019 airline punctuality rating.

As of year-end 2018, more than 15.9 million passengers used the airline’s services.

On August 1, 2019, S7 Airlines announced the return of its historical name, Siberia Airlines, and the launch of a campaign to replenish the forests lost during the fires in Siberia. For each Siberian destination ticket purchased through the website or the mobile app, the airline allocates funds for tree planting. You can support the initiative by transferring S7 Priority miles or funds with the help of a special tool available on s7.ru.

The airline will return to the S7 Airlines brand once the fund has enough resources to plant 1,000,000 trees.


1The service is available for iPhone 6s and later models.
