Transaero Airlines (Moscow) has unveiled at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport, the official presentation of the joint project with the Amur Tiger Center of the new “Siberian Tiger” livery on the pictured 447-seat Boeing 747-412 EI-XLN (msn 28029). The special color scheme is designed to “draw attention of the international and Russian public to the issues of environmental protection and conservation of rare and endangered species.”
The airline continued:
The project, called “Striped Flight”, has acquired the characteristics and features of the tiger with the nose of the aircraft adorned in the image of the head of the Amur tiger.
According to surveys conducted in 2015, the Amur tiger population in Russia in the wild has stabilized at around 510-540 individuals.
In the coming decade, the fate of tigers and the whole natural complex will largely depend on the concerted action of the international community. The airline and the Amur Tiger Center have joined forces under the motto: “Let’s save nature together.”
In flight, Transaero passengers on “Striped flight” will be able to view the documentaries produced by the Center under the “Siberian Tiger” project.
The Amur Tiger Center, located in Moscow and Vladivostok, specializes in the protection of Siberian Tigers.
