S7 Airlines Introduces Convenient New Way to Pay for Airline Tickets on its Website


The introduction of the new payment option is the latest stage of a program to expand electronic services at S7 Airlines. In June 2008 the airline implemented the latest Internet Booking Engine technology on its website.

“The new service will be popular among passengers who are already registered in the Yandex system and know how to make payments through the system. In addition, this alternative payment method will be convenient for those who for whatever reason do not want to use a bank card on the Internet,” says S7 Airlines’ Commercial Director Vadim Besperstov.

“The service is popular among our users,” says Yandex.Money’s Commercial Director Yelena Lozovenko. “And we are sure that they will appreciate being able to purchase airline tickets from such a popular carrier as S7 Airlines.”

S7 Airlines (the OAO Sibir 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. In October 2008, the certificate was successfully extended to 2010.

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.

The Yandex.Money payment system is a convenient tool for making instantaneous payments for goods and services through the Internet. More than 3000 new accounts are opened in the system every day, and more than 30,000 payments are made for various goods and services from hosting and mobile phone services to clothing and tickets.
