Russia's Transaero Airlines is certified as a 3-Star Airline

LONDON, UK - updated 26th July 2011

Transaero Airlines have been certified with the 3-Star Airline ranking by Skytrax, the independent, global airline rating organisation. This new 3-Star Airline ranking recognises the sustained quality improvement at Transaero Airlines across many areas of onboard product and service.

Edward Plaisted, Chairman and CEO of Skytrax: "Transaero Airlines has continued to introduce many changes over the past 12 months, and this has resulted in being upgraded from a 2-Star to 3-Star airline.  Skytrax star ranking audit examines more than 800 areas of product and service delivery, both on the ground and in the air. The assessment provides an accurate and independent guide for travellers around the world."

Skytrax, which is recognised worldwide as a leading independent authority on airline quality and assessment, has been completing quality audit checks with Transaero Airlines during 2011 and extensively examined all product and service delivery areas across international routes.

Transaero Airlines 3 Star ranking signifies that the airline has achieved a fair standard of product across all travel categories, with standards of staff service delivery in both the onboard and airport environments also well ranked. "One of the current factors preventing further Star Rating progressions for Transaero Airlines at this time is their mixed aircraft fleet" said Plaisted. "A lot of the onboard product has been inherited from other airlines that previously operated these aircraft, and the aim for Transaero Airlines has to clearly now target developing their own unique identity and product brand."


Transaero Airlines was the first private airline in the history of Russia. The company was built on a new foundation, absorbing the best in the world civil aviation industry.
