Nearly 95,000 people benefited from free Aeroexpress travel, including 53,000 people attending the Moscow matches, over 32,000 volunteers, and almost 9,500 FIFA-listed persons and non-accredited journalists.
“We expected to carry 1.2 million passengers during the 2018 World Cup, and this number ended up being even higher. We are pleased to note that our company managed to cope with the increased passenger flow. All our services worked as usual, i.e. trains were running according to the timetable, company representatives at the terminals successfully provided passengers (including foreigners) all the necessary services, and both automatic and electronic sales channels functioned without failure,’ commented Mikhail Kovalsky, Acting CEO of Aeroexpress.
Aeroexpress completed its provision of free travel services to football fans two days after the final match took place in Moscow on 15 July.
Volunteers, people included in the FIFA lists, and non-accredited journalists may travel with Aeroexpress free of charge on or before 25 July.
