The airlines of the S71 group have summarized the operations results for October 2019. Over the past month, the airlines carried 1,547,125 passengers, 11.5% more than in October 2018.
1,147,549 passengers took flights within Russia, which is 13.2% more than in October 2018. Growth on international destinations amounted to 7%. In October 2019, 399,576 passengers were transported on international flights.
Passenger traffic for the month increased by 15% and amounted to 3,258,840 thousand passenger kilometers.
“In October people typically make a large number of business trips, which is reflected in the growth in passenger traffic on S7 Airlines domestic routes. Continuing the development of the route network in Siberia and in the Far East, last month S7 Airlines started flights between Vladivostok and Krasnoyarsk. This is an important step in the development of the regions' transportation accessibility, give the fact that there are no alternatives to air transportation in these areas. Another example is a direct flight between Vladivostok and Magadan, which started in early November, ” said Igor Veretennikov, Commercial Director of S7 Group.
At the end of October, S7 Airlines switched to the winter flight schedule, which will be effective until March 28, 2020. In the winter season, flights to ski destinations are resumed, including those to Turin, Innsbruck, Salzburg, and Plovdiv. For the first time, S7 Airlines passengers from Moscow will be able to take direct flights to Milan, Italy. Direct flights will be available from Novosibirsk to Phuket, from Khabarovsk to Bangkok, and from Vladivostok to Nha Trang.
