«The airline is not going to expand its fleet significantly over the next 4 years. Under agreement with VEB-Leasing the deliveries of А380 jets to Transaero will be started in 2015 (1 aircraft per year). We have also signed an agreement with Sberbank-Leasing for delivery of 12 Boeing 737-800 jets (4 aircraft per year) and we also plan to take delivery of А320NEO. Generally, the carrier didn’t expand its fleet significantly in 2013-2014. Our efforts are focused on efficiency, quality of product, upgrade of aircraft cabins, installation of the latest in-flight entertainment systems and provision of in-flight internet access. We have equipped 29 jets with such system so far», - Deputy CEO – head of Financial Department of Transaero, Evgeny Temyakov.
