Aeroflot toughens penalties for unauthorised opening of aircraft emergency exits

Aeroflot has strengthened the penalties for unauthorised opening of emergency exits on board its aircraft. This announcement is directed primarily at passengers seated in exit rows.

Aeroflot reminds all passengers that emergency exits should be opened only in an emergency that threatens the life and health of passengers in the cabin, and only following express instructions given by cabin crew. Passengers who open the exits without authorisation and ignore instructions given by cabin crew will be held liable under current civil or criminal legislation. Aeroflot will seek damages for any losses incurred as a result of damage to its aircraft and or delays to flights.
