Russias Transaero Airlines Takes Delivery of First Airbus A321

Transaero Airlines, Russias second largest airline, has taken delivery of its first Airbus A321 aircraft.

The aircraft is part of Transaeros contract with ICBC Leasing Company.

Transaeros A321, powered by CFM56 engines, features a two-class cabin layout seating 184 passengers (8 in business and 176 in economy).

The airline plans to operate its A321 fleet on premium international routes.

Olga Pleshakova, CEO Transaero Airlines said, We are very pleased with this important step made towards further development of our cooperation with Airbus. I would like to express our sincere gratitude to the largest Chinese bank ICBC Bank and its subsidiary ICBC Leasing, who trust Transaero as a reliable partner, which is highlighted by the implementation of the signed contract. The addition of highly efficient aircraft to the companys fleet will contribute to enhancing the companys profitability, optimizing the airlines passenger capacity, and will see withdrawal of aircraft, which are of low demand in the current market conditions.

Transaero Airlines launched services in November 1991, and currently serves more than 200 routes all over the world.
