Residents of Novosibirsk are now able to fly direct to Cyprus and Tokyo. We have also continued the ongoing renewal of our fleet of airliners: passengers of S7 Airlines were the first passengers in the country to experience the luxury of flying on the new Airbus A321neo”, says Igor Veretennikov, Commercial Director of the S7 Group.

In August, S7 Airlines introduced new status levels in its S7 Priority loyalty program: these allow participants to earn privileges after only their fourth flight. The Classic level now has four new status levels— Junior, Master, Expert and Top.

Participants with the new status levels earn more miles for each flight (ranging from 10% to 20%), and can also enjoy free extra services: from booking seats in the cabin for Classic Master card holders, to extra baggage allowances for Classic Expert card holders. As well as all the privileges for the lower status levels, passengers with Top status get a 33% discount when they use their miles to buy Priority tariff tickets. Participants with any of the four status levels who become S7 Tinkoff credit card holders can get 30% cashback the first time they use their card to buy an air ticket. The full terms and conditions for the new status levels are on the site s7.ru.
