‘Highest global recognition’: Aeroflot wins four awards at the airline Oscars

Russia’s top carrier Aeroflot has been awarded four of six prizes on offer at the 2018 Freddies, the most high-profile awards for loyalty programs, which is focused on two key sectors of tourism – airlines and hotels.

Aeroflot Bonus, a loyalty program launched by the leading Russian airline, won in three categories: Best Elite Program, Best Customer Service and Best Redemption Ability. Aeroflot’s frequent-flyer program also picked up the special 210 Award, which is presented to companies with the greatest growth potential.

The winners were decided by online voting in six categories across three broad regions: North and South America, Europe/Africa and Middle East/Asia/Oceania. Over 4.2 million people from more than 230 countries reportedly took part in the voting for the best loyalty programs.

The two remaining categories not claimed by Aeroflot in the Europe and Africa region were won by Norwegian Air. The ceremony was held on April 26 in Seattle.

The prestigious Freddie Awards, established in 1988 by leading industry magazine InsideFlyer, are recognized as the Oscars of the airline loyalty sector.

“The famous Freddie Awards statuette has become a symbol of the highest global recognition for an airline loyalty program that meets the requirements of the sophisticated modern passenger,” Aeroflot said on its website.

The awards have acknowledged two of the key advantages of Aeroflot Bonus, including passengers' ability to use stashed miles for buying potential flights, and the high level of the company’s service for the second consecutive year.

Last month, Aeroflot, one of the world’s oldest airlines, was included on the list of the world’s most popular airlines, based on a survey of 60,000 passenger reviews. The company was ranked in eighth position.

Aeroflot Again Named World’s Strongest Airline Brand by Brand Finance

Aeroflot has once again been named the world's strongest airline brand by Brand Finance, the leading independent brand valuation consultancy.

The Russian flag carrier held onto its position at the top of this global ranking for the second year, and was also named as one of Russia's top brands in any sector.

Brand Finance measures the influence of aviation brands by a number of factors such as marketing investment, familiarity, loyalty, staff satisfaction, and corporate reputation. Aeroflot received the highest AAA rating. Aeroflot's brand strength score put it ahead of a number of other leading global carriers including American Airlines, Emirates, Turkish Airlines, British Airways, Air China and Singapore Airlines, which has been named best in the world in numerous ratings over the years.

Aeroflot's brand value also grew, increasing by 13% year-on-year to USD 1.429 billion.

"Aeroflot has held on to its position as the most familiar aviation brand in the world for the second year in a row," Aeroflot CEO Vitaly Savliev said. "Retaining our supremacy in the prestigious Brand Finance rating is a great honour and a singular achievement. It is also confirmation of an important fact - the strengthening of our global position is no mere chance, but rather the result of a true strategy and consistent ongoing execution. The development and strengthening of Aeroflot's brand involves a number of different dimensions, and we will continue to develop it both on the global and Russian aviation markets."

"Aeroflot has invested heavily in its young fleet, delivering a superior product and customer experience among increasing expectations," said David Haigh, CEO of Brand Finance. "This is complemented by marketing activities, particularly in Asia." Aeroflot's partnership with Manchester United - one of the world's most popular and successful football clubs - is also paying strong dividends to its brand reputation, David Haigh said.

Aeroflot wins best airline in Eastern Europe

Aeroflot won the Best Airline in Eastern Europe at the Skytrax World Airline Awards, held at the Paris International Air Show at Le Bourget. The Russian flag carrier took the title for the sixth time overall and the fifth year in a row. Ratings are based on the world’s largest passenger satisfaction survey, which was held from August 2016 to May 2017 with online voting in English, Spanish and Chinese.

Passengers from more than 100 countries took part, and almost 20 million questionnaires were submitted. The survey covered 320 airlines worldwide and evaluated almost 50 indicators across ground and airport services, on-board product and cabin service. Aeroflot participated this year for the first time as a 4-Star Airline, having become the first Russian airline to gain this status from Skytrax in 2016. 4-Star Airline status places Aeroflot firmly among the global elite alongside carriers such as Lufthansa, Emirates, Air France-KLM and BA.

“Being named Best Airline in Eastern Europe for a sixth time is a great honour and recognition” said Vitaly Saveliev, CEO of Aeroflot. “All of our triumphs are due first and foremost to effective management and the hard work of all of our staff, who work as a single team united to achieve our goals. We keep the bar high, but we intend to raise it even higher. Our goal is to become the Best Airline in Europe, which will mean even more outstanding service for our passengers and a qualitatively new global status for Aeroflot”.

In April 2017, Aeroflot announced that the Federal Air Transport Agency had granted Aeroflot route authorities to carry passengers, cargo and mail on scheduled flights from Moscow to Sydney and Auckland. December 2010. There are currently no direct flights from Russia to anywhere in Australia or New Zealand.

In March 2017, Aeroflot announced it may not take delivery of its fourteen A350-900s on order from Airbus. Last year, Aeroflot was able to extricate itself from an unwanted Dreamliner order by selling all purchase rights and obligations for twenty-two B787-8s to local Russian lessor, Avia Capital Services.

In March 2017, it was announced that Aeroflot had kept 32 of ex-Transaero international routes. Russia’s largest carrier Aeroflot and its subsidiary Rossiya Airlines have reserved for another year their right to operate 32 international routes inherited from their defunct competitor Transaero, Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency announced in a statement. The carriers appealed to the national regulator to extend their right to operate the total of 34 routes. Their request was satisfied almost entirely. The only two requests that were turned down, are Istanbul and Nha Trang (Vietnam). Aeroflot will thus continue flying from Moscow to all of the 17 international destinations it’s got in its current network - Aktau, Aktobe, Almaty, Astana, Atyrau, Karaganda and Chimkent in Kazakhstan, Alicante and Malaga in Spain, Venice, Milan and Rome in Italy, Lyon in France, Beijing in China, Phuket in Thailand, Tashkent in Uzbekistan and Tel Aviv in Israel.

In September 2016, Aeroflot launched a new on-board menu for business class passengers on flights to Asia. The new Asian menu includes dishes from Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai and Vietnamese national cuisine, and is offered on flights of more than six hours to Asia. Business Class passengers on these routes have the option to choose the Asian or standard menu. Passengers who opt for the Asian menus are also offered a snack, bread basket and dessert from the standard menu.

In August 2016, Aeroflot expanded fleet with two new Airbus A321s. The airliners are designed in a new enhanced two class composition with 16 seats in business and 167 in economy. All A321 aircraft family are delivered to Aeroflot directly from the manufacturing plant in Hamburg. Aeroflot operates А321 aircraft across its European and domestic routes network.
