Boeing, Air Lease Corporation, deliver S7 Airlines’ first 737 MAX

First MAX 8 for S7 Airlines

Boeing, Air Lease Corporation (ALC), and S7 Airlines celebrated the delivery of the airline’s first 737 MAX, via lease from ALC.

S7, operated by Globus Airlines, becomes the first Russian airline to fly the new and improved 737 airplane. S7 plans to take 10 more 737 MAX jets over the next few years as part of its strategic plan to strengthen its airplane fleet.

The 737 MAX 8 is part of a family of airplanes that offer from about 130 to 230 seats and the ability to fly up to 3,850 nautical miles (7,130 kilometers). The MAX 8, in particular, can seat up to 178 passengers in a standard configuration and features the popular Boeing Sky Interior. The airplane helps reduce fuel use and emissions by 14 percent compared to previous airplanes, outperforming the competition by 8 percent when it comes to operating costs per seat.

The 737 MAX is the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history with more than 4,700 orders from 104 customers worldwide.

Starting on March 25, 2018, S7 Airlines, a oneworld® global airline alliance member, switches over to the summer flight schedule, which will remain effective until October 27, 2018. During this period the airline will perform flights to 205 destinations in 34 countries around the world.

“In the summer season, we are pleased to offer S7 Airlines passengers about 30 new flights to foreign and domestic destinations. We have significantly expanded our presence in Western Europe and are launching flights to the cities which will arouse the interest of the most sophisticated travellers. Passengers will be able to travel from Moscow to Bari, the capital of the Italian province of Apulia located on the Adriatic coast, as well as to Olbia and Cagliari, situated on the wonderful island of Sardinia. Fans of ecotourism will appreciate the flights to Reykjavik and Tenerife, which are dramatically opposite in nature, but equally impressive,” notes Igor Veretennikov, the Commerce Director of S7 Group.

At the end of May, passengers of S7 Airlines will be able to go to Turkey, which is traditionally a popular country for summer holidays. Daily scheduled flights from Moscow to Antalya will allow travellers to plan themselves their vacation with family and friends in hotels, and property owners will have the same opportunity to plan their stay in their homes and apartments.

Traditional holiday season flights will be resumed in the summer schedule of S7 Airlines. Passengers will be able to fly directly to European seaside resorts, such as Málaga, Valencia, Pula, Dubrovnik, Ibiza and Kos, from Moscow Domodedovo Airport. There also will be flights to Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Tivat, Larnaca, Catania, Rome and other popular cities of southern Europe, which are in demand all year round.

Passengers from St. Petersburg will appreciate the convenience of direct flights to European countries, as there will be new flights to Pisa in Italy, Alicante in Spain and Pula in Croatia, as well as to Scandinavian capitals — Copenhagen and Stockholm. Besides, travellers from St. Petersburg can receive 1,500 bonus Miles and more for each flight to Europe1 if they take part in the “Fly to Europe with S7 Priority” campaign.

Passengers from Novosibirsk will also have new opportunities. S7 Airlines launches a direct flight to Larnaca starting 1 May 2018. Cyprus is traditionally popular with travellers from the Siberian region, and now passengers will be able to organise a trip without a connection in Moscow. In addition, direct flights to Frankfurt am Main and Düsseldorf — major transport hubs, from where it is convenient to continue the trip to European countries — will be resumed.

Japan, a country of striking contrasts, will become closer for residents of Siberia and the Far East. For the first time, passengers will be able to fly directly to Tokyo from Novosibirsk and Irkutsk and will again get the opportunity to fly directly to Osaka from Vladivostok.

S7 Airlines continues to develop interregional air carriages performed on modern Embraer 170 aircraft. Passengers will be able to travel to Samara, Kazan, Ufa, Krasnoyarsk, Tomsk from Novosibirsk and to Murmansk and Perm from St. Petersburg.
