Aeroflot is the #1 airline by seats flown on long-haul routes between Europe and Asia in Summer 2017.
Aeroflot’s capacity on Europe-Asia flights has overtaken last year’s top airline for Europe-Asia capacity, Lufthansa.
“Growing transit capacity on routes between Europe and Asia is one of our highest strategic priorities, and this data clearly illustrates the success of Aeroflot efforts”, Aeroflot CEO Vitaly Saveliev said.
“It is of particular significance that we have taken the #1 spot in an open and highly competitive segment of the market. Aeroflot Group is perfectly positioned on transit routes between Europe and Asia, and we intend to realise our potential to the full.”
Aeroflot flies to 52 non-Russian destinations in Europe and 13 non-Russian destinations in Asia, including four Chinese cities – Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Guangzhou. Boosting transit traffic between Europe and Asia is a strategic priority for the airline, as it takes advantage of its modern and favourably positioned hub at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport.
Aeroflot is increasingly recognised as a leader in the Asian market. In April 2017, Aeroflot was named Favourite International Airline in China at the prestigious Flyer Awards in Shanghai. Aeroflot Russian Airlines traffic as measured by passengers carried grew by 13.1% in the first five months of 2017. Aeroflot Group passengers carried increased by 15.9% over the same period.
