S7 Group and GetTransfer.com Completed the Second Investment Round
S7 Group and GetTransfer.com, a transport company providing transfers in more than 100 countries around the world, announce the completion of the second round of investments and the integration of the GetTransfer.com service into the S7 Airlines passenger product offer.
The specific feature of GetTransfer.com is the ability of transportation over long distances at the best prices and non-standard routes. In addition to a wide range of car classes and types with reliable carriers, the guarantee of a low price is the service’s advantage. GetTransfer.com operates according to the marketplace model, which allows customers to choose the most cost effective offer.
“The integration of GetTransfer.com’s long-distance transfer services into the S7 Airlines services allows us to ensure the passengers’ comfort, including on the way to the airport or destination upon arrival. We are pleased to strengthen the partnership with the fast-growing start-up, whose plans for their footprint development conform with the S7 Airlines route network”, says Oleg Gordienko, S7 Group’s Investment Director.
“This is the new stage of our cooperation in the field of investments. The funding received from S7 Group will be channelled to develop the IT infrastructure and new services of GetTransfer.com, including for airlines, as well as to expand our footprint”, said Aleksandr Pershikov, the founder of GetTransfer.com.
Since early 2018, GetTransfer.com has significantly strengthened its position in the international passenger market. To date, over 15,000 vehicles have been registered on the platform. The service faces increased demand of those who independently plan their business trips and journeys.
S7 Group is the largest Russian private aviation and space holding incorporating companies engaged in air transportation, maintenance, as well as in the outer space use.
In particular, the holding includes S7 Airlines, a member of the oneworld global airline alliance. S7 Airlines operate regular flights to 208 destinations in 34 countries, including the CIS countries, Europe, Middle East, South-East Asia and APAC countries. At year-end 2017, S7 Airlines carried more than 14.2 million passengers.
The holding also includes C7 Space Transportation Systems holding a space activity license in the Russian Federation.
GetTransfer.com was founded by Aleksander Pershikov in 2015 with the purpose of making long distance transfers more affordable. GetTransfer.com is an on-line platform for booking transfers or rent cars with a driver.
