Ural Airlines serves over 1,500,000 passengers this year

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, November 18, 2010. Ural Airlines welcomed its 1,500,000th passenger aboard its plane today.
The company’s Planning Department experts have calculated earlier that the record-setting passenger should be checking in for the morning Yekaterinburg-Saint Petersburg flight on Thursday. The name of the lucky person was determined a few minutes before the boarding; this was Nadezhda Petrova, an engineer employed at Ural Instrument-Making Plant.
‘This came as a total surprise to me; I’ve never won anything before, this is why I am especially delighted to become this 1,500,000th passenger of the year,’ Ms Petrova said.
The lady was presented with a flight voucher that will allow her to fly from Yekaterinburg to Barcelona and back.
‘Even though Ural Airlines is now operating on a whole country scale and offers flights from many other cities besides Yekaterinburg (namely, from Moscow, Novosibirsk, Kazan, Krasnodar, Irkutsk, and Samara), we are particularly glad to find our record-setting customer here, in Koltsovo Airport of Yekaterinburg. This year, our passenger turnover has grown by 25%, and checking in the 1,500,000th passenger for Ural Airlines’ flight means the transportation industry has coped with the recession,’ International Transfer Sales Director Marianna Galagura observes.
After the round of congratulations and gift-giving was over, Ural Airlines treated its passengers on Yekaterinburg-Saint Petersburg flight to some champagne.
