Transaero Airlines' first flight to Malta arrived from Moscow today and passengers were welcomed by His Excellency Ambassador to Russia in Malta V. Malygin, MTA CEO P. Bugeja and Malta IAP CEO A. Borg. The aircraft (a Boeing B737-500, EI-DTX) was greeted with a water arch from the airport’s Fire and Rescue team and tourists on board were handed flowers before joining in on the cake-cutting ceremony.

operating an extensive domestic network as well as internationally across
Europe, Asia, North America and the Middle East. Transaero Airlines has the
