I looked up transaero and found there were differences with their websites.

The english version is a bit dated - 1997, I think.: http://www.transaero.com/noframes/eng/home.htm

The Russian version version is up to date and quite nice. I know a bit of Russian but it is a bit (actually alot) "rusty" http://www.transaero.ru/

I wanted to find a bit of info about them; mainly service and fleet info. I was able to get to the fleet part but couldn't find out how many 747's they have.

If anyone knows, this would surely be appreciated.

BTW I need to brush up on my Russian, I know; just asking for a bit of help, that's all. If not, then I'll plug away at my Russian (which I need to do, anyway)  Smile

Good Day  Smile (btw I tried to type in "good day" in Russian but got a bunch of gibberish, instead - need to figure out how to get it right!}

I'm originally from Russia (a long time ago), but I am still fluent in Russian.

The section I found most interesting on the Russian version site was the "15 years of Transaero" section under "Company information," which doesn't appear on the English version. Some highlights from there:

-Transaero was the first private airline in the history of Russia, founded on November 5, 1991.
-It was the first Russian airline to acquire Western aircraft, Boeing 737-200's, 1993.
-First Russian airline to offer business class on domestic routes.
-First Russian airline to establish a frequent flyer program.
-First flight was a charter on Moscow-Tel Aviv-Moscow route.
-First plane was an Il-86.
-First scheduled route was Moscow-Norilsk.
-In 1996 it began service to America, using a DC-10 to LAX.
-In 1997 it was the first Russian airline to be certified by the American FAA to service and maintain its Boeing aircraft independently.
-In 1998 it became just the second airline in the world to acquire the new Boeing 737-700.
-It was the first Russian airline to code-share with an international carrier, in 1999.
-In 2002 acquired 767-200 and 737-300 for first time.
-Also in 2002 it became the first airline in history to offer direct service between Moscow and Taipei.
-In 2003 acquired boeing 767-300.
-Awarded title of Russian company of the year for 2004.
-In 2005 placed order for 10 Tu-214's.
-Also in 2005 it became the first and only Russian carrier to operate a 747, although just one. It is configured for 468 passengers.
-Also in 2005, agreed to lease 6 new Boeing 737-NG's.
-As of 2005 it flies to 80 destinations.
-New destinations include Montreal, Toronto, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Densapar, and Sanaa.
-Transaero shares gained 42% from 2004-05, so the company is doing very well.

Hope that helps! BTW I flew Transaero a couple of years ago on the DME-ALA-DME route, and I was impressed by the quality of their service.

Virgin Atlantic. It has been reported that the two former Virgin 747s (new to Cathay Pacific) that were earmarked for Southern Winds have now also been sold to Transaero. The one that was parked at Bristol-Filton has left for its pre-delivery maintenance in the US.

Incidentally when will Transaero start the service to MAN that they have been promising for so long? With Cathay's service stalled, time to jump in. DME is my favourite airport in the world, and I have a degree in Russian which is also in dire need of some practice!

Thanks for the consideration and the information.  Smile

I've always been interested in Russian culture and would like to go to Russia. I would also like to travel on the Siberian Rail Road. I'm sure Aeroflot is a good airline but I would like to go to Russia on an "alternative" carrier.

Yeah it does come up with the wrong one on top, but the third one down is the correct one. Also, there is really no way of saying "have a good day" in Russian as it is not a construction generally used.

This thread takes me back to my posting to Latvia in the early 90s. I flew many a flight on Transaero from Riga to London, but it was under a different ticket -- RiAir (Riga Airlines) -- since at that time Transaero was was not allowed to operate to LGW. What they did was a complete crew change at RIX, including pilots and cabin crew, and the whole thing went off as a Latvian registered plane. But those 737-200s were in the fledgeling days of the airline.

I flew one of their 732s a few years ago; friendly crew, IFE on 1:30 KBP-SVO (my screenname Big grin), great airline back then.
Haven't flown them recently, but would certainly like to. They give a discount for online booking.

And it seems Transaero have launched scheduled flights to the Egyptian Red Sea Riveriera with flights to Sharm El Sheikh (SSH) and Hurghada (HRG).

Sharm El Sheikh:
UN351 DME SSH -2--5-- 14:00/17:40 4hr30min 0 B762
UN352 SSH DME -2--5-- 18:40/23:55 4hr15min 0 B762

Hurhgada:
UN349 DME HRG -2----- 09:10/12:30 4hr20min 0 B762
UN349 DME HRG ----5-- 10:40/14:00 4hr20min 0 B763
UN350 HRG DME -2----- 13:30/18:50 4hr20min 0 B762
UN350 HRG DME ----5-- 15:00/20:20 4hr20min 0 B763


Transaero are the second Russian airline (after Siberia Airlines) to serve the Red Sea with scheduled flights (S7 have a weekly flight to SSH and 2x weekly to HRG).

Does anybody know which CRS they participate in? I've checked both Sabre and Amadeus, and I can't see any UN flights. I know they were in Sabre in the late 90s but then pulled out.

I know for a fact that when UN got their first 747, it was used on their daily flight to Israel. I flew UN last year to Corfu, Greece from DME and spent a lot of time reading the inflight magazine, which featured a whole article on their newly-acquired 747. They mentioned that it will definitely be used year-round on the Israel flight. And their plan was also to fly them to Egypt during the holiday season.

Now, as they get more of the 747s (at that time they only had one), I'm sure we will see them on various high yield routes.

On a side note, UN really needs to revamp a few of their 763ERs which are in absolutely horrible conditions!!! i can't believe I spent 5 hours in one of those cabins. Poor people who fly on those transatlantic flights to Canada.

They use them on charters. Atleast they did during the tourist season during the winter. They also fly one of them to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatski.
