New cooperation agreement between Air France and Aeroflot


On 23 March 2010 in Paris, Vitali Saveliev, Chief Executive Officer of Aeroflot, and Pierre-Henri Gourgeon, Chief Executive Officer of Air France-KLM, signed a new cooperation agreement in the presence of Mr Igor Levitin, Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation and Mr Dominique Bussereau, French Secretary of State for Transport.



This agreement, which will enter into effect on 28 March 2010, will enable Aeroflot and Air France, SkyTeam alliance partners, to offer their customers code-shared flights beyond their respective hubs at Moscow-Sheremetyevo and Paris-Charles de Gaulle, therefore taking benefits of the provisions of the agreement concluded between the Russian and French authorities in 2005.


Air France and Aeroflot will commercialize code-share flights to:

  • 6 destinations in Russia, operated by Aeroflot beyond Moscow to Khabarovsk, Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Yekaterinburg et Nizhnevartovsk ;
  • 4 destinations in France and Europe, operated by Air France beyond Paris to Strasbourg, Lyon, Marseille and Lisbon.


The signing of this new agreement, which expands the 2002 code-share agreement between Aeroflot and Air France covering services between Paris and Moscow, further strengthens the cooperation between the two airlines and allows for a significant increase of the number of destinations served on a code-share basis by the two airlines.


“Aeroflot and Air France have been cooperating within the framework of a bilateral agreement since 1997, and today their cooperation is significantly reinforced by this new agreement. This agreement will further improve the quality of service provided to our customers by increasing their access to our respective networks,” stated Vitali Saveliev and Pierre-Henri Gourgeon.

Today, Aeroflot and Air France sell 8 daily round trips operated on a code-share basis between Paris and Moscow. The two carriers offer a specific seat block on each aircraft.
