About Singapore Airlines

When Singapore Airlines was formed in 1972, it operated a modest fleet of 10 aircraft to just 22 cities in 18 countries, most of which were in Asia.  With a commitment to fleet modernisation, product and service innovation and market leadership, the Airline quickly distinguished itself as a world-class carrier. Today SIA is internationally recognised as the world’s leading airline and operates a modern passenger fleet of more than 100 aircraft. Its network, including Singapore Airlines Cargo and SilkAir destinations, covers 101 cities in 40 countries.  

Singapore Airlines made aviation history in October 2007 as the first to fly the world's largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380. This is synonymous with the carrier's efforts to be a leader in civil aviation. In 2004, it launched the world’s longest non-stop commercial flight between Singapore and New York (Newark) using the Airbus A340-500 aircraft.


About Transaero Airlines

Transaero Airlines is the second-largest passenger airline in Russia.  Transaero launched its services in November, 1991.  Transaero’s fleet consists of 64 modern aircraft, including sixteen Boeing 747s, eight Boeing 777s, thirteen 767s, twenty four 737s and three Tupolev 214s. Transaero has the largest long-haul fleet in Russia.  It is the only carrier flying Boeing 777 and Boeing 747 passenger aircraft in Russia, the CIS and Eastern Europe.

Transaero serves more than 120 routes in Russia, Europe, Asia, Africa and America.  Transaero maintains scheduled flights from hubs in Moscow and Saint Petersburg, where its head office is located, from Novosibirsk and Yekaterinburg.  Transaero was the first Russian full service airline to introduce e-ticketing in March 2007 and the first in the country to offer Internet check-in for its passengers.
