The pandemic has changed many travelers’ plans, but we know that it will not last forever. Once all of this is over, we will continue exploring this world the way we used to. Special rules that have been developed for this challenging situation will help you cancel your trip or postpone it until later.
Returning Your Tickets
As the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation # 991 dated July 6, 2020 has entered into force, the procedure for refunding tickets purchased before May 1, 2020 with the following flight dates has changed:
- from February 1, 2020 on routes to/from China and Hong Kong (China);
- from March 18 on all international and domestic routes.
If your flight has been canceled or you have decided to cancel your flight, you can use the amount you have paid for purchasing S7 Airlines tickets or obtaining additional services. For your convenience, the amount will be credited to a certificate1. The certificate may be used during the period of 3 years starting from the flight departure date shown on the ticket that you are returning.
If your tickets meet these conditions and a certificate has already been issued for you, we will automatically extend its validity period from 1 year to 3 years2.
If your flight has been canceled by the airline, we will increase the certificate amount by 10%. If you have canceled your flight for personal reasons, we will credit your certificate with the full cost of your ticket without any deductions for making the change.
|BASIC||Economy||A certificate is issued for the cost of unused transportation (tariff and fees)||A certificate is issued for the cost of unused transportation (tariff and fees) and an additional 10% of this amount|
If 3 years have passed since your flight departure date and you have not yet used the certificate, the money will be refunded.
In this case, you will need to submit an application:
- In the Feedback section of the www.s7.ru website (for tickets purchased on the www.s7.ru website or through the S7 Contact Center).
- By mail addressed to: 633104, the Russian Federation, Novosibirsk Oblast, Ob, Prospect Mozzherina, 10, suite 201.
The interest rate for the use of funds corresponds to the key rate of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation effective during the applicable periods.
Some categories of passengers are eligible for early refunds. More Details
