A Personal Assistant service is also available to provide support for wheelchair users traveling by Aeroexpress trains.

Aeroexpress is a socially responsible company and has been supporting the Spread Your Wings! Charity Foundation for a long time already. Since 2009, Aeroexpress has been a long-standing partner of the Train of Hope, an all-Russian charity initiative organized as part of the social project ‘Children’s Issue’, jointly administered between the Radio Rossii state radio company, the Spread Your Wings! Charity Foundation, and Aeroflot Russian Airlines. The Train of Hope programme involves arranging meetings between potential adoptive or foster parents with children who lack parental care.
In 2013, Aeroexpress assumed patronage over the Dedovsk special comprehensive boarding school, which makes every effort to help its students socially adapt more smoothly. In June 2013, Aeroexpress, together with Sheremetyevo Airport, held an Open Day for children from the Dedovsk boarding school. The children went on a sightseeing tour and visited the Aeroexpress and Sheremetyevo facilities.
