S7 Airlines passengers now able to choose fellow passengers using social networks

S7 Airlines has become the first company in Russia to allow its passengers get information on their fellow travelers before boarding.

To find out who is flying with you, when checking in online at S7.ru specify your profile in one of the social networks — Facebook, Vkontakte or Google+. The name and photo of the passenger, as well as the details of other passengers, who agreed to specify their account at check-in will appear on the seat map.

«We strive to give the passengers as much comfort as possible throughout their journey. A passenger’s profile usually contains their interests and occupation. This can help you choose a pleasant company for the flight during online check-in. We hope this service will become popular», Dmitry Chuiko, S7 E-Commerce Director noted.

Passenger data in the system are securely protected. S7 Airlines does not publish personal details specified at ticket purchase. Passengers can add a link to their social network profile to the chosen seat by themselves. You can also delete the information about your profile from the system at any time and the seat will remain the same. Read more
