Transaero Airlines, Russias second largest airline, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Airbus for four A380 aircraft.

The agreement was signed by Olga Pleshakova, Transaero Airlines CEO and Christopher Buckley, Airbus Executive Vice President Europe, Asia and the Pacific.

Transaero will become the launch customer for the A380 in Russia, the CIS and Eastern Europe. The Russian carrier plans to start operations with the A380 on its long-range network of high density routes from Moscow.
