S7 Airlines will name its flights after the heroes of the Great Patriotic War

S7 Airlines, a oneworld® global airline alliance member, holds a special event — “The Flight of the Hero” — timed to the Victory Day, during which the participants are given the opportunity to name the flights of the airline after their relatives, who are veterans of the Great Patriotic War.

To take part in the “The Flight of the Hero” event, you need to apply for it at the dedicated website www.victory-name.s7.ru and specify the name, rank, and place of deployment or duty of the veteran, after whom you’d like to name the flight of the airline.

The names of the heroes will be assigned to one of 1454 S7 Airlines flights that will be operated from 8 May 2017 to 14 May 2017.

The list of named flights will be updated on the page of the action on the S7 Airlines website, and, during the flight, flight attendants will announce the name of the veteran of the Great Patriotic War the flight is named after.

The participants can also share the information about naming the S7 Airlines flight after their relative to social networks.
