Ural Airlines to fly millionth passenger on September 17

Ural Airlines’ Planning Department experts report the airline is going to fly this year’s millionth passenger on September 17, 2009.

‘We are not quite sure yet which flight this lucky passenger is going to take, but we’d say it will probably be our Yekaterinburg-Saint Petersburg flight (departure time is 2:45 PM), or our Yekaterinburg-Prague flight (departure time is 2:00 PM). This millionth passenger will receive congratulations and presents from the carrier; what is more, all of this flight’s passengers will be treated to a glass of champagne,’ the spokesperson for the company said to an UrBC reporter.

In fact, Ural Airlines performance indicators have remained the same this year as they were last year, while the August results where even better than in August 2008. For one, the carrier flew 223,886 passengers last month, including 111,766 international passengers, 92,557 domestic flight passengers, and 19,543 people traveling to the CIS. The total number of passengers serviced in August 2009 was 13% greater than that recorded in August 2008. What is more, the number of operated flights was 27% greater in August 2009 than a year earlier.
