In November, S7 Airlines became the first airline in Russia to receive a certificate confirming its GREEN status in the Fast Travel program of the International Air Transport Association (IATA). The program is aimed at the development of self-services by airlines for the convenience of passengers at different stages of travel.
An airline receives the GREEN status when it successfully implements three mandatory projects of the Fast Travel program in at least one airport. These services include online check-in, remote re-booking, and self check-in for baggage. All these services are available to S7 Airlines passengers departing from the Moscow Domodedovo Airport. In addition, S7 Airlines implemented one of the program’s three optional projects, which is the creating the opportunity to board at the gate via a turnstile by holding the boarding pass next to the scanner.
