The discount will apply to the tickets on sale from September 18 and until the end of 2013.
This is yet another action of Russia’s leading airline aiming to help people of the region that suffered from disastrous floods. “A natural disaster demands efforts from us so we made a decision to lower economy fares for the flights to Far East by 20% until the end of the current year,” – announced Aeroflot CEO Vitaly Saveliev during his meeting with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Tuesday.
Aeroflot has already actively stepped in helping the victims of high-water. The airline transfers and evacuates children from the flooded regions; transports volunteers to assist in rescue operations and humanitarian aid e.g. provision, baby food, hygienic supplies, medicaments and consumables. Additional transportation of volunteers to Khabarovsk is planned to accelerate restoration works and preparation of damaged housing for winter season.
Aeroflot Management Board agreed on rendering financial assistance of 10 million rubles to the region in distress. Besides, company’s employees of all ranks voluntarily transferred part of their salaries to the victims of the floods.
These actions fully correspond with Aeroflot’s traditions and philosophy of socially responsible company, always ready to help people in critical situations.
