The message reads, in part:
“Aeroflot’s history began back in 1923, with the founding of the legendary Dobrolyot society. This laid the cornerstone of the excellent traditions of utmost professionalism, responsibility, and concern for passengers’ safety in which the company can take deserved pride. Of course, we also remember the courage that Aeroflot’s pilots and other staff have shown in difficult and sometimes dramatic situations.
Aeroflot today has a team of more than 17,000 people who are all professionals in their field. It remains Russia’s civil aviation flagship company and keeps apace with the times, actively carrying out promising and truly innovative projects and setting high quality standards for its services. This has won it the deserved confidence of millions of people in Russia and abroad.”
