IATA converts fares to euros


This month, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) adopted a resolution obliging fares for international flights originating in Russia to be published in Euros from December 1 2006. Even so, the fares for most of S7’s routes will not change.

For some destinations, the currency in which S7’s fares are published will change from US dollars to Euros. The conversion rate will be 1 USD = 1 EUR. This will entail an increase in the total fare, in these cases, of around 6%. Fuel charges will also be published in Euros. The fares for Russian domestic routes will continue to be published in rubles only.

Most of S7’s flights are Russian domestic flights, so most of our passengers should not be inconvenienced by this changeover. The fares for these routes will remain unchanged. In addition, web fares, which are significantly cheaper than traditional fares, are available for many domestic routes.

You can find a flight timetable, check seat availability and book tickets on the company’s official website, www.s7.ru, or by calling (free from within Russia).
