The victorious youngsters of the team which wins the West Group of the Gazprom Neft Cup, Europe’s biggest youth hockey tournament, will be flown from Minsk to the final in Omsk on a special charter plane provided the tournament’s new official partner, Yamal Airlines.
Yamal is one of the biggest airlines in Russia’s vast Western Siberia region. In 2013 the company won the coveted national aviation award, the Wings of Russia, in the category: Airline of the Year – best passenger carrier on Russia domestic routes, group II.
Yamal’s diverse fleet includes the Airbus A-320, Boeing- 737, CRJ-200LR, Challenger 850 and the L- 410, and in 2013 the airline purchased two new Airbus A-321 craft.
Yamal devotes special attention to flight safety. The airline has introduced a unique automated system which monitors the quality of flight operations, and each year, its aircraft crews are given training courses to attain higher qualifications and extra drilling in dealing with emergencies and other unusual circumstances which may occur during flights. Another significant factor underpinning the company’s top-class service is the high-quality training given to the technical staff servicing the fleet.
Yamal is justly proud of its sense of social responsibility, and subsidies from the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug government enables the company to offer some of the most affordable prices for tickets of any airline in the country.
Yamal Airlines is a leader among Russian regional carriers by both the quantity and quality of its flights, thanks to its adherence to basic principles: stability, quality and reliability.
