S7 Airlines reduces the minimum fare for its Moscow-Perm flights to 500 RUB
‘We operate 28 flights a week between Perm and Moscow; per day —up to 5. We have spare seats on our flights that we can offer to passengers who would not previously have considered flying an affordable mode of transport,’ said Aleksandr Larin, Director of the S7 Group’s Central Regional Branch.
S7’s new fare compares to that for a train journey from Perm to Moscow in an ordinary carriage. The latter costs from 700 to 1100 RUB (the service charge is 100-400 rub), and the travelling time is 24 hours. The travelling time by air is 2 hours.
The 500-RUB fare is available from our website, www.s7.ru, 21 days (or more) before departure.
Our 1750-RUB and 2250-RUB fares are still available. The 1750-RUB fare is available from all our ticket offices and our website, www.s7.ru for tickets booked 14 (or more) days before departure; 2250-RUB fare is also available from all our ticket offices and our website, for flights booked (or more) days before departure. Flights booked via our website receive a 5% discount. These fares are comparable to that for the equivalent rail journey in a couchette compartment (2000-3500 RUB, depending on the class of train).
S7 Airlines has been the main carrier at Perm’s Bolshoye Savino Airport since December 2006, operating 33 flights a week. In the peak months of the summer, S7’s timetable for flights to/from Perm will include more than 50 flights a week.
S7 Airlines is Russia’s largest domestic carrier and one of the world’s top 50 domestic airlines. In terms of passenger numbers, S7 is Russia’s second-biggest airline overall.

S7’s fleet comprises 62 Airbus A310/A319, Boeing 737-500/400, Il-86 and Tu-154M aircraft.
