Transaero in LA

Russian private airline Transaero has tapped into the US market with a new Moscow-Los Angeles route. Three leased 290-seat DC-1030s will be used for the non-stop, 12-hour weekly flights. Passengers will arrive in Moscow at Sheremetyevo-I airport, where they can transfer directly to Transaero’s domestic and CIS flights with a 2-5 hour stopover. In October, the company will start flights to Orlando (Florida) where its Russian competitor Aeroflot failed to garner passengers because of a poorly organized marketing campaign. Routes to Chicago and Seattle will follow.
