Aeroflot, tour operator Biblio Globus and Transaero Airlines (Moscow) have reached agreement on transportation of Transaero passengers through December 15, 2015.
Aeroflot has made available a long-range Boeing 777-200 from the fleet of its Orenair (Orenburg Airlines) (Orenburg) subsidiary to the tour operator in fulfilment of obligations between Biblio Globus and Transaero to carry tourists through December 15. 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 October 25.
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 October 15 to December 15.

Air Austral (Reunion) has announced an order for two Boeing 777-200 LR (Longer Range) Worldliners. The two airplanes were previously listed on Boeing’s Orders and Deliveries website as unidentified.
The 777-200LR is the only wide-body airplane that can fly nonstop from Reunion Island to Paris with a full payload from the short runway on the island of Mayotte. The carrier currently operates 777-200 ERs (Extended Range) on the route.
Air Austral has a current Boeing fleet of two 777-300 ERs, three 777-200 ERs and two 737s. In addition, Air Austral will receive two new 737-800s at the end of 2010, a third leased 777-300 ER early next year as well as these two new 777-200 LR in mid-2011 and 2012.
