S7 Airlines, a member of the oneworld® global aviation alliance®, within the S7 Priority frequent flyer programme announces the start of cooperation with the Children’s Charitable Foundation «Obiknovennoe Chudo». The foundation became the first partner of the programme.
From the 1st of October S7 Priority members will have an opportunity to help children, who are under care of the foundation, to get to places of medical treatment or rehabilitation. To do this the member should transfer collected miles from his/her account in the loyalty programme to the Charitable Foundation «Obiknovennoe Chudo».
Miles transferred will be used to issue air tickets for S7 Airlines flights, so that children under care of the foundation and their accompanying persons could get to specialized health care facilities to receive medical treatment or rehabilitation needed.
“S7 Airlines already provided air tickets to different children’s charitable foundations, when there was a need for flights to places of medical treatment. Now there is a special charity programme, in which S7 Priority members can participate sharing their miles in order to provide help for children. In the near future large foundations will join the S7 Airlines charity programme”, Natalia Nikolaeva, S7 Priority Loyalty Programme Development Director, noted.
