Transaero has acquired four Dreamliners

Transaero Airlines of Russia has signed a firm contract with Boeing for four 787-8 Dreamliners. The order is estimated at 744 million at list prices.

"Our history with Boeing goes back to 1993 when Transaero became the first airline in Russia to fly with Boeing aircraft," said Transaero Airlines Chairman of the Board of Directors Alexander Pleshakov.

Boeing 787s will perform flights on both Transaero's domestic and international routes. The signing ceremony for the order was held onboard the 787 during a demonstration flight for Transaero's executives, employees and special guests.

Transaero’s Dreamliners will have 210-250 passengers in a three-class seating (4 seats in the first class, 14 seats in business class and 244 seats in economy class).  

Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the first mid-size airplane capable of flying long-range routes and will allow airlines to open new, non-stop routes preferred by the traveling public.

Engineers from the Moscow Boeing Design Center participated in designing a number of key sections of the 787. Russian manufacturer VSMPO-AVISMA supplies titanium parts for the 787 Dreamliner.
