Siberia Airlines begins flights to Samara
“The market for air transport between Samara and Moscow is subject to a high degree of competition,” said Alexei Savchenkov, the director of Siberia Airlines’ Central Regional Branch. “We hope that we will soon be able to introduce a Boeing 737-500 on this route, as the aircraft is more comfortable and economical than the Tu-154. However, we are still offering a very competitive product on the Moscow-Samara route: accessible fares; departure from Domodedovo, the most modern airport in Russia; and a broad network with connections to many destinations. Our business lounge for internal passengers is the biggest and modern business lounge in Russia.”
As part of the modernization of the Siberia Airlines fleet of aircraft, 10 Boeing 737-500 aircraft were leased in 2005-6, which will be used for domestic routes from Moscow (Sochi, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Kazan, Chelyabinsk, Magnitogorsk, Novosibirsk, Nizhnevartovsk etc.), and also on routes to Germany, Armenia and Ukraine.
Boeing 737-500 aircraft are designed to carry 104 passengers: 8 in business class and 96 in economy. It has a spacious interior and low noise levels, as well as other advantages which ensure a comfortable flight. The Boeing 737-500s have all been repainted in the company’s new colors, in accordance with the rebranding program.
