Most people traveling to and from Russia stick to flying with Aeroflot and grant their positive attitude to this Russian airline. It is known to be the greatest air carrier in Russia, with the headquarters in Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow. Some time ago it was spoken to be the largest airline in the world. What is Aeroflot today? During long Soviet period of Russian history Aeroflot was both national air carrier and the entire civil aviation of Russia. Since 2000, however, Aeroflot began to position itself as an airline of international class. New Airbuses and Boeings were bought, new livery was desighned - new image of airline was created and maintained with special care.

The word 'Aeroflot' means 'air fleet'. What fleet an air carrier with such a name has? The most of Aeroflot planes are Russian jets - Ilyushin Il-76s, 86s and 96s, and Tupolev Tu-134s and 135s. The rest of it are the Airbus models - 310s, 319s and 320s and Boeing 767s and 777s. Every plane is well maintained and kept in good condition to prevent any possible accidents. These planes carry you to many airports of Russian Federation, such as Anapa, Archangelsk, Barnaul, Chelyabinsk, Irkutsk, Kaliningrad, Kemerovo, Mineralnye Vody, Murmansk, Naryan-Mar, Novosibirsk, Omak, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Samara, Ufa, Vladivostok, Yekaterinburg and more, including airports of Moscow and St Perersburg. Different world-wide routes are also operated, such as lines to Amsterdam, Antalya, Athens, Baku, Beijing, Berlin, Cairo, Damascus, Delhi, Dubai, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Havana, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Kiev, London, Los Angeles and a lot of other destinations. Unfortunately many of these locations are accessible only through Moscow for now.

The service is also improved significantly. You will be met with friendly smiles and respect of the crew. Hot meals, snacks, amenities kits, wide choice of beverages and drinks will help you enjoy your flight. Aeroflot is also going to join a SkyTeam Alliance, the group of major airlines organized to provide an improved international air traveling service by means of cooperation. This promises further development and integration in the world air space.

For air travelers it will mean more convenient flights and more improvements. Recently Aeroflot launched its variation of Frequent Flyer program, which allows to its customers to fly with greater comfort and pleasure. This moment Aeroflot has a lot of merits, as well as flaws. Nobody's perfect, so today Aeroflot is providing air traveling service following European standards. Also this air carrier has one advantage, unlikely to be used by other major air carriers - attractive price, which will save your money, even if you fly Business class. So if you are going to take a trip and don't mind to see Russian capital by the way, you can try to fly with Aeroflot.
