25 September 2017 - From 25 September 2017 through to 8 January 2018, Aeroexpress passengers purchasing tickets via the company’s website and mobile app will receive a RUB 500 discount for their first ride with BelkaCar. This amount is enough to rent a car for one hour. That means passengers will not have to pay for their travel from home to reach Aeroexpress trains (or vice versa).
The campaign is aimed at resolving transport issues faced by the metropolis. Passengers will be able to arrive at the airport by the time they need using Aeroexpress services and save significantly on their trip through the city due to no need to use any taxi. For travellers’ convenience, the campaign will be extended until the end of New Year holidays, during which various options to travel to/from the airport are particularly in demand. Hundreds of passengers have already benefited from the offer and have experienced the comfort of a new city transport mode.
According to Aeroexpress’ managers, carsharing blends seamlessly into the multimodal transport environment of Moscow and creates new opportunities to travel around the city by car. Another advantage is free parking for all carsharing users.
“We were happy with the results of our first joint campaign with BelcaCar and are very pleased with the company’s intention to continue our mutually beneficial cooperation. Together, we are creating a new level of Moscow’s transport system, providing the freedom of choice and maximum comfort to our passengers,” says Valery Fyodorov, COO of Aeroexpress.
“Carsharing has been developing rapidly but it cannot offer its customers allocated lanes so far. That means that every traveller should make his own choice whether to go to the airport in advance or not to risk and drive to the rail terminal and then change to an Aeroexpress train,” say BelkaCar’s representatives.
During the campaign’s validity period, passengers purchasing Aeroexpress e-tickets will receive a special alphanumeric code for a discount, together with an email containing their receipt. Only new BelkaCar users will be able to take advantage of this offer by installing the app on their mobile device and ordering the first ride around Moscow.
