S7 Airlines Concludes New Interline Agreement on Electronic Tickets
Electronic tickets (e-tickets) on all the international flights of these airlines are issued as part of bilateral interline agreements signed with S7 Airlines.
Interline agreements on mutual recognition of paper airline tickets had previously been in effect between the airlines.
Electronic ticket technology is especially convenient for passengers who transfer from an S7 Airlines flight to a flight of a partner airline. E-tickets are stored in electronic form in a special database, so there’s no risk that they will be forgotten, lost or stolen.
S7 Airlines passengers can already purchase e-tickets on the flights of 32 Russian and foreign partner airlines.
The company plans to increase the number of electronic interline agreements to 45 by the end of 2008.
OAO Sibir Airlines (the S7 Airlines brand) is the largest airline on Russia’s domestic routes and is one of the top 50 world air carriers in this segment.
In 2007 the company received an official notification from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) about the airline’s certification in that organization, becoming the second carrier in Russia to successfully pass the IATA Operational Safety Audit.
S7 Airlines is one of Russia’s most stable airlines, incorporating the latest achievements of the world industry in the servicing of passengers and actively expanding its service. S7 Airlines won the annual national “People’s Brand / Brand No. 1 in Russia” prize in 2007.
