Transaero Airlines and easyJet sign commercial agreement

Transaero Airlines, Russia’s second largest carrier, and easyJet, the UK’s largest airline, have signed a Commercial Agreement on flights between Moscow (Domodedovo) and London (Gatwick).

The agreement was signed by Olga Pleshakova, CEO Transaero Airlines, and Chris Kennedy, Chief Financial Officer for easyJet.

According to the agreement, Transaero Airlines will distribute a proportion of seats on easyJet flights on the Moscow (Domodedovo) -London (Gatwick) route. This agreement applies to the flights from October 27, 2013 that will be operated under the following codes: from London UN7401/U28401 and UN7403/U28403 as well as from Moscow UN7402/U28402 and UN7404/U28404.

Olga Pleshakova, CEO Transaero Airlines, said: “Undoubtedly we are glad to welcome the launch of the commercial cooperation with easyJet that will offer more choices for our passengers on the Moscow-London route. In addition to our own services from Moscow Vnukovo airport to Heathrow airport, Transaero Airlines will allow our passengers to get to London’s Gatwick airport from Transaero’s base airport with an extensive route network - Moscow Domodedovo airport. We are sure that this is unique in the context of the airline’s history of cooperation and will be mutually beneficial.”

Catherine Lynn, Group Commercial Director, said: “We are pleased to be working with Transaero and look forward to welcoming many new customers onboard easyJet flights. We now operate two services per day between Moscow Domodedovo and London Gatwick using our fleet of modern Airbus aircraft which are amongst the youngest in Europe. London Gatwick is perfectly located for exploring the capital city or the south east of England and also provides access to easyJet’s wider network of 100 destinations across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.”
