S7 to use Airbus A319 on more Novosibirsk routes
In summer 2006, as part of its fleet modernization program, S7 leased 6 A319 aircraft. This medium-range aircraft, manufactured by the European consortium Airbus Industrie, has a spacious and comfortable two-class cabin layout designed for 120 passengers in economy class and 8 in business class. The A319, along with the A318, A320 and A321, belongs to the Airbus A320 family of modern narrow-body aircraft. The aircraft used by S7 are equipped with CFM56-5 engines made by CFM International. All the aircrafts were built in 1999-2000. They are painted bright green, in keeping with S7’s new image.
‘According to the results of numerous independent surveys, passengers have taken to heart the spacious and comfortable cabins of the aircraft in the A320 family, which are fitted with wider seats, while carriers and investors strongly prefer these aircrafts for their modern construction and attractive cost-effectiveness,’ commented an Airbus spokesperson.
You can find a flight timetable, check seat availability and book tickets on S7’s official website, www.s7.ru, or by calling (free from within Russia).
