Moscow - Aeroflot has been once again recognised as the Favourite International Airline in China. The prestigious award was given to Aeroflot for the second consecutive year at the Flyer Award Ceremony 2018. The official ceremony was held today for the sixth time in Shanghai, the economic capital of China.

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

The awards recognise outstanding participants in China’s tourism market. Previous winners include leading global airlines, including carriers that hold Skytrax 5-Star Airline status. Aeroflot retained the title of Favourite International Airline at the competitive Flyer Awards due to its service quality, affordable ticket prices and convenient connecting flights from its hub airport of Sheremetyevo, which is involved in the China Friendly initiative.

This recognition of Aeroflot as the Favourite International Airline in China is a significant achievement for us as a global carrier and a national carrier,” Aeroflot CEO Vitaly Saveliev said. “It is further testimony of the efficiency of our strategic efforts in China – a key market for Aeroflot. We are happy that Chinese passengers value the high quality of our product and choose us for their travels to Russia and all over the world. Aeroflot will further strengthen its position in China, both by attracting tourist flows and by expanding our transit offerings between Europe and Asia via Moscow. Aeroflot is proud to make a significant contribution to the development of economic relations between Russia and China within the framework of the strategic cooperation between two great countries.”

Aeroflot’s convenient routes encompass four key locations in China: Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Guangzhou. Aeroflot constantly adds new services oriented at Chinese market. In Summer 2017, Aeroflot signed a partnership agreement with Alipay, China’s most popular payment system. Aeroflot’s official website has a Chinese-language version.
