Transaero gets first Boeing 747-400

The first Boeing 747-400 in Transaero Airlines colours has been delivered to the carrier at Moscow Domodedovo International Airport. Its first commercial flight is scheduled for the end of December.
The B 747-400 is the most advanced among Transaero’s wide body jetliners and brings the number of aircraft in the carrier’s fleet to 29.

The jetliner has three class configurations including premium class (with a seat pitch of 80 inches), business class (60 inches) and economy class (33 inches). These seating arrangements plus the individual in flight entertainment systems make it the most comfortable long haul jet to operate in Russia.

The jet is powered by four RR RB211-524H2-19 engines and has a maximum range of about 8,100 NM (15,000 km). The aircraft can carry a maximum of 352 passengers (11/56/285).

Putting the B 747-400 into operation strengthens Transaero’s position as the largest Russian airline in terms of passenger capacity for long haul routes.

“We are happy to have this new type of aircraft in our fleet. We are convinced that our passengers will enjoy more comfortable flights and shorter traveling times. We also hope that the B 747-400 will help us diversify our long haul route map,” said Transaero Airlines Director General Olga Pleshakova.


The B 747-400 will be used primarily for Moscow- Singapore and Moscow- Dominican Republic routes
