S7 Airlines to Transport Russian Olympic Team to Beijing


In the period from August 13-20, S7 Airlines will transport to Beijing a delegation of 108 members of the track team, which is now training in Irkutsk.

The athletes will arrive at the new Terminal III of Capital Beijing Airport, which was opened specially for the Summer Olympic games. Today S7 Airlines is the only Russian air carrier using the new terminal.

Regular S7 Airlines flights from Novosibirsk to Beijing are being flown four times a week on modern, comfortable Airbus A319 and Airbus A320 aircrafts.

Flights along the Irkutsk-Beijing route are flown three times a week.

OAO Sibir Airlines (the S7 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.

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.
