Aeroflot has been named as one of the world’s 20 leading airlines by passenger traffic by Air Transport World (ATW).
Russia’s flag carrier has significantly strengthened its international position year-on-year, climbing five places and ranking ahead of peers including Qantas, Thai Airways and Iberia with 20.2 bln RPKs in the first five months of the year.
The results underscore Aeroflot’s continued ability to deliver high performance in a challenging economic environment driven mainly by external factors.
Aeroflot is the only Russian airline included in ATW’s authoritative international ranking, continuing the carrier’s track record of success in 2015. In June Russia’s leading airline was named best airline in Eastern Europe for the third consecutive year at the Skytrax World Airline Awards at the Paris Air Show.
