The airline was founded in the spring of 2008, S7 Airlines, a major Russian airline based in Novosibirsk for charter flights. Globus Airlines started operations shortly thereafter on a Tupolev Tu-154M, which was previously in use at the parent company. Another type aircraft Tupolev Tu-154M and the first Boeing 737–400 was transferred later in the first year of operation of S7 Airlines to Globus Airlines. In addition, followed by Boeings 737–800 of bankrupt U.S. carrier ATA Airlines.

By December 2008, less than a year after its founding, the rapidly growing airline was sold by its parent company S7 Airlines to the East Line Group. Its purpose was to concentrate on flying to holiday destinations.[1] From 2010 Globus has been operating mainly regular domestic services.
