S7 Airlines Congratulates Russian Boat Fishing Team for Winning Bronze Medal


A total of 170 athletes from 13 countries vied for the top spots. The delegation of the Russian team included 13 people, including two women. The athletes competed both individually and as part of their national teams consisting of 5 people each.

S7 Airlines provided uniforms for the Russian team, which it will be able to use in the future in other tournaments, and helped to transport oversize fishing gear in the airplane.

The Russian division of the federation, which assembled the Russian team, is competing for the first time in the championship, which is being held in Ireland.

S7 Airlines is the only airline that operates regular direct flights from Moscow to Dublin.

Flights are operated three times a week on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays on a modern Airbus A319 airliner. S7 Airlines flew the first flight on this route on April 27, 2008.

OAO Sibir Airlines (the S7 Airlines brand) is the largest airline on Russia’s domestic routes and one of the top 50 airlines in the world 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.
