by Richa 20. August 2013 07:02

Virgin America has recently signed an interline deal with Russian airline Transaero. The deal is a part of Virgin’s expansion program in terms of “interline agreements.” An interline agreement is a deliberate commercial pact between two individual airlines to carry passengers and their baggage during connecting flights. Such deals allow passengers to use the services of multiple airlines through their journey.

The Virgin America-Transaero deal will help accommodate Transaero passengers traveling on its flights to New York and Los Angeles to board Virgin’s planes out of these two destinations. This is good news for all the passengers who have planned or are planning their journeys on one of the two airlines in the near future. Virgin America is based in California, but San Francisco and Los Angeles are two of its biggest bases in the country.

Transaero has said that travelers from the United States can board their planes from San Francisco or New York on Virgin and continue their onwards journey to Moscow on Transaero and vice versa. The new deal, which covers Virgin America’s routes via Los Angeles and New York will also connects its other destinations. These comprise Washington, Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Dallas/Fort Worth, Las Vegas, Seattle, Portland (Oregon) and San Jose (California).

Adam Green, Virgin America’s Director of Network planning said that the airline is happy to seal this interline deal with Transaero. He said that the pact would allow guests traveling onboard Transaero access to routes extensively operated by Virgin. He added that the airline looks forward to welcome travelers from Russia into the United States.
