Emirates Airline and Russian carrier S7 Airlines on Thursday announced an enhanced partnership which is set to improve connectivity and benefits for customers across Russia.
Emirates and S7 Airlines have been in an interline partnership since 2003 which was further enhanced in 2008. The new codeshare deal further builds on this strong partnership and sees the Emirates code added to more than 30 routes operated by S7 Airlines across Russia as well as on S7â€™s twice weekly service between Dubai and Novosibirsk. It also allows S7 to reciprocally put its code on the Dubai to Moscow route operated by Emirates.
The new agreement allows Emirates customers to connect seamlessly through Moscow to a range of destinations, including Anapa, Astrakhan, Barnaul, Chelyabinsk, Irkutsk, Kaliningrad, Kazan, Kemerovo, Krasnodar, Krasnoyarsk, Mineralny Vody, Nizhnekamsk, Nizhnevartovsk, Nizhniy Novgorod, Noviy Urengoy, Novokuznetsk, Novosibirsk, Omsk, Perm, Rostov-on-Don, Samara, Sochi, St. Petersburg, Stavropol, Tomsk, Tyumen, Ufa, Vladikavkaz, Volgograd, Voronezh and Yekaterinburg.
The extended partnership also creates a direct link under Emiratesâ€™ code between St. Petersburg and Moscow, allowing visitors to experience Russiaâ€™s two largest cities with a single travel itinerary.
