Very tasty food during the flight, and before takeoff, even handing out candy to the ears are not pledged. Still polar airline best of its kind!

Not every company will be able to adjust performance in such difficult weather conditions as we do, and polar explorers did it! I can not get enough of them, everything is fine!

I believe that the Polar Airlines perfectly cope with their tasks - you need to transport the passengers transported. And about what to fly in a small cabin is not convenient, though ashamed to say I do not like, try to find an airline that you will agree to carry.

When planting shakes, of course, specific, but it can not overshadow the joy of my first flight. An indescribable feeling. Thank you!

I flew this airline for the first time. All just great! Such a feeling that he sat down for just a minute, but it turns out that we have already landed! Landing took five minutes, with the luggage waiting for about the same amount, and this is considering that on my last flight, when I bought tickets for another airline, the airport staff managed to lose my luggage and about an hour figured out where he had been redirected! Therefore, I estimate this company as the most positive one that I had to use. The only drawback is the price for tickets, which, even with such quality service, is very high for me personally, but on the whole I express my huge gratitude to the crew - guys are just fine fellows! Thank you.

Overall, the airline is not bad, but it would not hurt, to improve the online ticketing system, as did the majority of self-respecting airlines. To date, the reliability of payment is completely absent. With this approach to maintenance and related customer rates are too high. At the same time the feeling that all employees, including the company's representatives at the airport, were to work since the Soviet Union, everything is so gray and dull that even the appearance of a soft flight erased on this background.

Twice he flew flights from Polar Airlines to Turkey and Cyprus. Maintenance and general arrangement of the aircraft leaves a positive impression, five out of five! But as for me, quite a few international flights depart directly from the city, I have to fly through Moscow, and this, given the huge demand for tickets. In general, this is quite inconvenient as you need to spend extra time on the road. The impression is created that other airlines simply cannot withstand competition with Polar Airlines in our country - this is like a proverb, and I will not talk to anyone else. If the company is not able to establish a direct flight, let others not interfere with their work. At the same time, the fact that ordinary people feel the main inconveniences does not seem to bother anyone.

I enjoyed flying with Polar Airlines. Service is top notch, just class. The pilot is doing an excellent job. Takeoff and landing were calm, without hesitation. We flew quietly, peacefully, without delay. The flight attendants offered blankets, magazines, newspapers, and a choice of food and drinks. During the flight, the stewardesses talked nicely with the passengers, paying attention to everyone and taking an interest in their well-being. In the future I will continue to use Polar Airlines. Thanks to the entire crew for such a flight.

Polar Airlines is a very good airline recently flew on a plane AN-24, very pleasant, beautiful airplanes and helicopters, friendly flight attendants, a very good pilot, takeoff and landing were professionally done. The airplane is clean and comfortable. Thank you.
