Emirates and S7 Airlines announce codeshare agreement on more than 30 Russian routes

Partnership will provide international passengers with seamless connections to regions across Russia
Emirates, a global connector of people and places and Russian carrier S7 Airlines, have announced an enhanced partnership which is set to improve connectivity and benefits for customers across Russia.
Emirates and S7 Airlines have been in an interline partnership since 2003 which was further enhanced in 2008. The new codeshare deal further builds on this strong partnership and sees the Emirates code added to more than 30 routes operated by S7 Airlines across Russia as well as on S7’s twice weekly service between Dubai to Novosibirsk. It also allows S7 to reciprocally put its code on the Dubai to Moscow route operated by Emirates.
The new agreement allows Emirates customers to connect seamlessly through Moscow to a range of destinations: Anapa, Astrakhan, Barnaul, Chelyabinsk, Irkutsk, Kaliningrad, Kazan, Kemerovo, Krasnodar, Krasnoyarsk, Mineralny Vody, Nizhnekamsk, Nizhnevartovsk, Nizhniy Novgorod, Noviy Urengoy, Novokuznetsk, Novosibirsk, Omsk, Perm, Rostov-on-Don, Samara, Sochi, St. Petersburg, Stavropol, Tomsk, Tyumen, Ufa, Vladikavkaz, Volgograd, Voronezh and Yekaterinburg.
The extended partnership also creates a direct link under Emirates’ code between St. Petersburg and Moscow, allowing visitors to experience Russia’s two largest cities with a single travel itinerary.
Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, said: “Our new codeshare agreement with S7 Airlines provides our passengers with increased choice, flexibility and ease of connection to different cities within Russia from Dubai, ultimately offering a smoother, more convenient travel experience.”
Anton Eremin, S7 Group Deputy Chief Executive Officer, said: “This new codeshare agreement with Emirates is an exciting development for S7 customers. It provides them with convenient, seamless access to Dubai and onwards to the rest of the world through Emirates’ extensive route network, direct from their local airport.”
Based at Domodedovo Airport (DME), S7 Airlines operates flights to more than 80 cities from its Moscow hub. Emirates customers travelling on any of the 30+ S7 codeshare routes will enjoy the same luggage allowance they are entitled to on their Emirates flight and have the convenience of a single ticket. All Emirates’ passengers on S7 operated flights will receive boarding passes on check-in at their first departure point for all connecting flights, providing a seamless travel experience.
The new codeshare booking facility is available now on emirates.com and through Emirates sales offices and travel partners for travel from now.
Emirates currently has codeshare agreements in place with a number of airline partners around the world including Qantas, Jetstar and Jet Blue.
Emirates operates daily scheduled flights between Dubai and Cyprus. Emirates flies five times weekly – every Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday – via Athens. While on Mondays and Wednesdays, the morning flight arrives in Larnaca from Dubai, and the afternoon flight arrives from Malta on its way back to Dubai.
