Transaero Airlines receives its first Airbus A321
Transaero Airlines today received delivery of its first Airbus A321 as a result of a long- term leasing agreement between the airline and ICBC Leasing of China.
The delivery from Airbus’s Hamburg plant is part of Transaero’s fleet renewal programme and business efficiency enhancement programme. Under these programmes Transaero’s fleet is being expanded with new fuel efficient aircraft with optimal passenger capacity for the current market conditions.

Transaero will start operating its first A321s on the high demand medium-range routes, i.e. to Paris, Tel Aviv, Astana, Almaty, Novosibirsk. Dmitry Stolyarov, First Deputy CEO Transaero Airlines said: “We are very pleased with this important step made towards further development of our cooperation with Airbus. I would like to express our sincere gratitude to the largest Chinese bank– ICBC Bank and its subsidiary ICBC Leasing, who trust Transaero as a reliable partner”.
He also stated that the addition of highly efficient aircraft to the company’s fleet will contribute to enhancing the company’s profitability and optimizing the airline’s passenger capacity.
