Globus Airlines[2] (Russian: Авиакомпания «Глобус», romanizedAviakompanija «Globus») was[1] a Russian airline based at Domodedovo International Airport 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] Its purpose was to concentrate on flying to holiday destinations.[3] From 2010 Globus has been operating mainly regular domestic services, however still in cooperation with its former owner, S7 Airlines.[2]

In August 2019, the airline's head announced that S7 Airlines and Globus Airlines would merge by December 2019, therefore closing the operations of the second airline.[4] By early December 2019, the merger had been completed.[1]
