Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Thursday, 13 July 2006

Star Alliance carrier bmi and Russian Federation carrier Transaero are to launch daily return flights between Moscow Domodedovo and London Heathrow on 29th October at the start of the winter timetable period. The new services from Heathrow are part of a commercial agreement signed by the two carriers on Tuesday in London, and will double the number of return flights to Moscow Domodedovo from Heathrow to four round trips per day.

A commercial agreement between the two carriers was a condition of the designation of bmi to serve Moscow from London Heathrow, following the recent bilateral negotiation between the UK and Russian Federation Governments. Through the agreement both airlines will benefit from reciprocal codeshare and sales activities. This will allow bmi to offer onward connections in the Russian Federation on the services of Transaero from Moscow Domodedovo. Transaero will be able to offer connecting flights at Heathrow onto the extensive domestic, European and long haul network of bmi.

Alexander Krinichansky, executive director of Transaero said, We are delighted that we have been able to conclude this agreement with bmi. With the launch of new competitive services from Heathrow by Transaero and Star Alliance member bmi, we see great potential for both point to point and connecting services. Jointly selling these new services in our respective countries will enable Transaero and bmi to benefit from the strength and reputation we enjoy in our home markets.
