Aeroflot’s Ambitions

Russia’s leading airline, Aeroflot, seems increasingly intent on upgrading its image. Starting January 20 of this year, the airline introduced a new menu offering a wider choice of hot dishes and beverages. Over the course of this year, the company will acquire 15 brand-new Western-made planes. Moreover, in 1999, the company plans to build its own terminal at Moscow’s Sheremetevo airport based on Heathrow’s Terminal 4 in London. According to the airline’s general director, Valery Okulov, Aeroflot plans to achieve a “small economic miracle” by attracting almost 27% more passengers in 1998 than last year.
