S7 Airlines informs about situations, when passengers tried to check-in using fake tickets purchased via dishonest websites.
"According to passengers, the tickets were purchased via the following websites: http://fast-avia.ru and http://seach-avia.ru. At present these websites are shut down. The passengers paid for the tickets using credit cards, after that a file resembling an itinerary receipt was sent to their e-mails. The file contained a number of S7 flight and departure time, however, the booking never happened", - said in the carrier’s statement.
S7 Airlines informs that these websites have never been connected to booking systems allowing passengers to purchase a ticket for S7 flights. "S7 Airlines is concerned about the situation and recommends contacting S7 call-center at 8-800-200-000-7 (the call is free in Russia) in case of purchasing a ticket at an unknown website. The operator will be able to check the ticket using its number and a reservation code. S7 Airlines recommends purchasing tickets using official website of the carrier or other proven websites. Purchasing the ticket via the airline’s website is the safest, most convenient and profitable way to buy the ticket", - said in the statement of S7’s press-service.
