Aeroflot adds long-haul capacity with new 777-300ER

The FINANCIAL -- Aeroflot has taken delivery of a new factory-direct Boeing 777-300ER — the 13th of 16 aircraft B777-300ER’s ordered by Aeroflot.

The latest addition to its fleet further expands Aeroflot’s capacity on long-haul routes to such destinations as (but not limited to) Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo, New York, Los Angeles, from its base at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport, a fast-growing hub for East-West transit traffic. The new 777-300ER is configured with Business Class, Economy Class and Comfort Class cabins.

The new aircraft has been named after Russian dramatist, whose works played a major role in the development of Russian national theater — Alexander Ostrovsky. The plane is equipped with spacious Signature Interior, which includes large overhead compartments and has deservedly proven popular with passengers. It is also equipped with Boeing’s Airplane Health Management system, according to Aeroflot.

Passengers flying Comfort Class enjoy a premium-class service at highly competitive prices, with features including additional legroom and baggage allowance, an upgraded menu and more Aeroflot Bonus miles, and a warm Russian welcome and award-winning in-flight service from Aeroflot’s stylish English-speaking crew.

Aeroflot has the youngest fleet of any major carrier worldwide. Russia’s flagship carrier was named the world’s most punctual airline by Flightstats twice in 2014.
