9 October 2015, Moscow. – Aeroflot, tour operator Biblio Globus and Transaero have reached agreement on transportation of Transaero passengers through 15 December.
Aeroflot has today made available a long-range Boeing 777 from the fleet of its Orenair subsidiary to the tour operator in fulfilment of obligations between Biblio Globus and Transaero to carry tourists through 15 December. The decision was taken due to Transaero’s inability to operate its own planes on the tour operator’s routes and the cancellation by Transaero of all charter flights after 25 October.
Biblio Globus thanks the management of Aeroflot and Transaero for its assistance in resolving the challenge of carrying Transaero passengers. The airplane will be made available for two months, from 15 October to 15 December.
“Aeroflot has shown itself to be a genuine partner, providing a helping hand in a very challenging situation for us,” said Alexander Tugolukov, Managing Director of Biblio Globus. “Thanks to Aeroflot we will continue to be able to provide our clients with a high level of service, high-tech solutions and the best tourism offer at affordable prices.”
