JFK TERMINAL 4 WELCOMES TRANSAERO AIRLINES FOR ITS U.S. DEBUT
Russia’s Second Largest Airline Expands Service to US, Now Offering Travelers Direct Flights from Moscow to NYC
Transaero Airlines, the second largest air carrier in Russia, has made its U.S. debut now offering direct, non-stop flights three times per week between Moscow and New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport Terminal 4.
Transaero began service from JFK Terminal 4 on October 29, with flights three times per week to Moscow’s Domodedovo International Airport on a Boeing 747-400 aircraft equipped with approximately 352 seats divided into three travel classes: Business, Premium Economy and Tourist Economy. The flights operate each Sunday and Friday arriving JFK at 7:30pm and departing for Moscow at 9:30pm. On Wednesdays, the flight arrives from Moscow at 12:15pm and departs JFK at 2:00pm.
“This is a historic milestone for Transaero and we are glad that they chose Terminal 4 to mark their entry to the New York market," said Janice Holden, chief commercial officer of JFKIAT, LLC, which operates Terminal 4. "Transaero is a thriving, privately-owned airline that for nearly 20 years has enjoyed measurable success and a rapidly expanding route network. We look forward to a productive and enduring partnership."
Alexander Pleshakov, Chief Executive Officer Transaero Airlines added, "We are delighted to inaugurate our service to JFK International Airport as New York is a natural step in the progression of Transaero’s expansion plans. New York City is a premier global destination gateway and Terminal 4 is an ideal choice for our customers. We expect consumer demand to be sufficiently favorable so as to enable us to increase service from three times weekly."
