Aeroflot takes delivery of its 45th Sukhoi Superjet 100

Aeroflot takes delivery of its 45th Sukhoi Superjet 100

Moscow, 4 July 2018 - Aeroflot has taken delivery of its 45th Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100). The aircraft, with the registration number RA-89113, is named in honour of the legendary Soviet pilot Alexey Maresyev. The Russian-built Sukhoi Superjet 100 is configured with 12 seats in business class and 75 seats in economy class. The new SSJ100 will start operating on Aeroflot routes in the coming weeks.

The name Alexey Maresyev is inscribed in Russian history thanks to the courage shown by the pilot during the Great Patriotic War. As a result of a serious injury received on the front, A.Maresyev had both his legs amputated, but the legendary pilot returned to the front and continued to fight bravely for Russia. For his services he was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union. His example became the prototype for the main character of "The Story of a Real Man" by Boris Polevoy.

Aeroflot understands the importance of supporting Russian manufacturing and is currently the largest operator of Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft. The airline plans to expand its fleet of SSJ 100 aircraft, bringing the total number to 50. The Sukhoi Superjet 100 planes will operate flights on Aeroflot routes within Russia, CIS countries and also to a number of European countries.

United Airlines Partners with Global Glimpse to Fly More Than 1,000 Students and Teachers

United Airlines Partners with Global Glimpse to Fly More Than 1,000 Students and Teachers

CHICAGO, June 25, 2018 - In the peak of summer travel, United Airlines (UAL) is flying 1,000 high school students from diverse backgrounds from across the U.S. for an immersive travel experience in a developing country as the exclusive airline partner of Global Glimpse. By providing access to travel, the airline will help students gain perspective, and build authentic connections across cultural, racial, economic, and social divides as a part of United's continued efforts to break down barriers and promote inclusion and inspire future generations of aviation leaders.

Together, United and Global Glimpse will reach 70 high schools across the San Francisco Bay Area, New York, Chicago, Western Massachusetts and six college preparatory organizations to serve 1,000 majority low-income students by the end of this summer travel season. While abroad, students will have a powerful international experience where they will immerse themselves in a new culture, live and work alongside locals and volunteer in the community. Through the Global Glimpse program, students will engage in cultural seminars, meet with local business and community leaders, tutor local youth in English and develop community action projects in partnership with local organizations.

"We are in a unique position at United to connect these students to the world," said Sharon Grant, Vice President of Community Affairs at United Airlines. "It is exciting to share in this journey, one that we hope will provide a new perspective on their lives and dramatically expand their views of the world."

"Our partnership with United Airlines affirms and expands our commitment to connect young Americans from disparate backgrounds to one another and to the world," said Eliza Pesuit, Executive Director at Global Glimpse. "With United by our side, more students will return home with the skills, confidence, and perspective to tackle complex issues in their local and global community."

Prior to this summer's trips, United employees shared best travel tips and helped prepare students and their teachers for their journeys. Many of the students will have their first experiences on board an aircraft when they fly to and from Dominican Republic and Ecuador through June, July and August.

United in the Community

Community Affairs is the charitable heart of United, using people, planes and network to do good. Driven by the idea that every action counts, United chooses to invest in its communities through four main pillars: break down barriers and promote inclusion, inspire future generations of aviation leaders, lift up communities impacted by disaster and connect people and planet.
