Press release from: Air Berlin

airberlin and the Russian airline S7 have extended their codeshare agreement and now operate 47 joint routes. The additional services to numerous destinations within Russia are now available for booking.

Passengers can fly on codeshare flights from Berlin, via Moscow, and on to Irkutsk, Samara, Kazan, Perm, Ufa or Rostov. A brand new destination is the major city of Yekaterinburg in the Urals, which, like all other Russian cities, can be reached via Mos-cow from Düsseldorf, Munich, Frankfurt or Hanover. Flights from Stuttgart to Russia have also been included in the timetable. This therefore marks the first time that all codeshare routes have been integrated in the airlines’ schedule as standard connecting flights.

The codeshare arrangement between airberlin and S7, the largest domestic Russian airline, has been in place since the start of 2009. The passenger volume has increased steadily within two years. During this period the increase in passengers using the ser-vice between the capital cities of Moscow and Berlin has been around 75 per cent. The proportion of transfer passengers has now exceeded 30 per cent.

Customers of both airlines can collect and redeem frequent flyer miles on any routes operated by the partner airline. Tickets can be booked online via airberlin.com, by calling the airline’s Service Centre (tel. 01805 – 737 800; € 0.14/min. from a German landline, mobile phone charges not exceeding € 0.42/min.), as well as through travel agencies.

The fleet encompasses 170 aircraft with an average age of five years. Consequently airberlin operates one of the youngest fleets in Europe.

In 2010 the airline carried 33.6 million passengers. airberlin has now signed a declaration which will allow the airline to join oneworld®, the worldwide aviation alliance.
