Globus Airlines[1] (Russian: Авиакомпания «Глобус», translit. Aviakompanija «Globus») is a Russian airline based at Domodedovo International Airport owned by East Line Group and operating for S7 Airlines.

History[edit]

The airline was founded in the spring of 2008 by S7 Airlines, a major Russian airline, based in Novosibirsk for charter flights. Globus started operations shortly thereafter with a Tupolev Tu-154M, which was previously in use at the parent company. Another Tupolev Tu-154M and the first Boeing 737–400 were transferred from S7 Airlines to Globus later in the first year of operation, followed by second-hand Boeing 737–800 aircraft.[citation needed]

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.[citation needed] Its purpose was to concentrate on flying to holiday destinations.[2] From 2010 Globus has been operating mainly regular domestic services, however still in cooperation with its former owner, S7 Airlines.[1]

Destinations[edit]

Globus Airlines operates scheduled and charter flights to domestic and some international destinations on behalf of S7 Airlines.
