Transaero completes purchase agreement for four A380s

Transaero completed a purchase agreement for four A380 aircraft following signing a MoU for the aircraft in Oct-2011, according to report by eTN. The aircraft will be financed by VEB Leasing. The agreement will see Transaero become the first customer for the aircraft in Russia, the CIS and Eastern Europe. Transaero plans to configure the aircraft with 700 seats in a three-class layout. The airline will announce its engine selection at a later date. Transaero Airlines CEO Olga Pleshakova said, “I am sure that the operation of the A380 will stimulate the development of Russia’s aviation sector, in particular, its ground infrastructure. In addition, our passengers will benefit from the completely new air travel experience that the A380 offers with its spacious, comfortable cabin, for their long-haul flights.”
