Cheap Transaero Flights (UN)


Transaero Airlines was the first private airline in the history of Russia. From the very beginning, the company was built on a new foundation, absorbing the best in the world civil aviation industry.

Transaero was the first in Russia to add modern foreign-made aircraft to its fleet, to provide an international standard of service on its domestic routes (in particular by introducing Business Class on domestic flights), to create a flexible system of fares and discounts, and to design and introduce frequent-flyer incentive programs.
