Aeroflot again named China’s Favourite International Airline
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 prestigious 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.
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. Passengers receive menus in Chinese, and the in-flight entertainment system is available in Chinese.
Onboard announcements are made in Chinese and the menu offers a special Asian set. ■
