Transaero cargo climbs 30 per cent

DURING the first nine months of the year Russian carrier Transaero’s cargo volumes increased 30.2 per cent over the same period in 2010.
The airline transported a total of 35,782 metric tonnes of cargo from January to September.

“I’m delighted that Transaero has reached the record results for the first nine months in the year of its 20th anniversary,” Transaero Airlines general director Olga Pleshakova said.

“They indicate steady growth and stable development of the carrier’s business during the period. It’s quite important that figures increased on both international and domestic routes. We go on with implementing our development strategy that allows us to grow faster than the market does,” Pleshakova added.

In related news, Tranaero has reached a preliminary agreement with Boeing to buy four 747-8Fs. The agreement came just days after the company said it had reached a tentative deal to buy four of Airbus’ largest aircraft, the A380.
