Aeroflot continues to be China's Favourite International Airline

AEROFLOT has for the third year in a row been honoured as the Favourite International Airline in China at the Flyer Award Ceremony 2019 held in Shanghai.

The awards are supported by the Civil Aviation Administration of China's (CAAC) inflight magazine and sector publication Flyer Tea. Winners are selected by the jury and by votes from frequent flyers and travellers.

The prestigious awards recognise outstanding participants in China's dynamically developing tourism market. Previous winners include leading global airlines, including carriers that hold Skytrax 5-Star Airline status.

Aeroflot won the award due to its key competitive advantages: high service quality and flexible fare policy.

"The recognition of Aeroflot as the Favourite International Airline in China is confirmation of the effectiveness of our strategic efforts in China", said Aeroflot CEO Vitaly Saveliev.

"We offer our customers a wide route network and one of the youngest fleets in the world. Millions of Chinese passengers choose our airline for affordable ticket prices, convenient transit via our hub airport Sheremetyevo and high-quality service.

"Further development of service on Europe-Asia transit routes - one of the most competitive aviation markets globally - is one of Aeroflot's key goals, along with the active expansion of the domestic route network."

The carrier's routes encompass four key locations in China: Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Guangzhou. Earlier the airline signed a partnership agreement with Alipay, China's most popular payment system.
