Transaero has expanded its Moscow Domodedovo (DME) network with two new routes in the past week. On 22 September, the Russian airline connected its hub at the Russian capital with the capital of Spain, Madrid (MAD).
The route is serves three times weekly with 122-seat 737-300s, competing with Iberia’s 16 flights a week and the Spanish airline’s Russian oneworld partner S7’s also three weekly flights. Indirect competition also comes from Aeroflot’s daily flights from Moscow Sheremetyevo.
Two days later, on 24 September, Transaero launched a weekly service to Amman (AMM), the capital of Jordan, from Domodedovo. The route, which competes with Royal Jordanian’s three weekly flights, is operated interchangeably with 101-seat 737-500s and 122-seat 737-300s.
