S7 Airlines, legally JSC Siberia Airlines is an airline headquartered in Ob, Novosibirsk Oblast, Russia, with offices in Moscow. It is a member of the Oneworld alliance. S7 Airlines reportedly operates to almost 150 destinations domestically within Russia and internationally throughout Europe and Asia. As of January 2022, the S7 Airlines fleet consists of 105 aircraft.

Meanwhile, Western media reports say the fate of hundreds of planes leased by Russian airlines from foreign companies grew murkier on March 14 after Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law letting the airlines register those planes and continue flying them.

Russian state media reports say the law will let Russian airlines keep their fleets and operate foreign planes on routes within Russia.

According to analytics firm Cirium, Russian airlines have 980 passenger jets in service, of which 777 are leased. Of them, two-thirds, or 515 jets, are rented from foreign firms.

According to ABC News, aviation consultant IBA says S7 topped all Russian airlines with 101 planes on lease from non-Russian entities as of early March.
