On 14 June, a total of 2,200 people attending the first match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Moscow enjoyed free Aeroexpress rides.
In the first three days of the tournament, Aeroexpress trains transported over 3,000 football fans. Visitors to the Moscow matches were first able to take advantage of such free rides on 12 June, two days before the World Cup started.
Until now, a total of virtually 14,000 people have benefited from travelling with Aeroexpress for free. Most of the transported passengers are volunteers, who appreciate being able to benefit from the company’s services for free, starting from 14 May.
On 25 May, Aeroexpress trains also started transporting persons included in the FIFA lists and journalists without accreditation.
In order to travel free of charge, football fans should provide their Fan IDs and tickets for Moscow matches at an Aeroexpress ticket office. Volunteers, persons listed by FIFA and non-accredited journalists may ride for free provided that they have a special travel card obtained from accreditation centres, along with a volunteer card, accreditation card or a journalist ID, correspondingly.
