New Transaero Flights

MOSCOW -- Transaero, Russia's largest private air carrier, has launched nonstop flights to London and plans to start direct flights to New York in the spring, the airline said Tuesday.

The regular Monday and Friday flights to London began last week, an airline spokeswoman said.

Transaero is promoting the route with $290 round-trip fares and couples flying under identical itineraries can purchase tickets for $247.50 each.

Nonstop flights to New York are scheduled to start March 31. The airline is also planning to kick off flights to Hannover, Germany, next year.
