UPDATE: Jordan comments and sends us this ‘welcome’ piece of news:

Business Credit Cards

“Upon the decision of the Government to reorganize the activities of Transaero and to ensure the transportation of our passengers, the sales of tickets for our flights has been stopped” said the statement “the transportation of passengers with issued tickets for our domestic and international routes will be up to December 15, 2015. Tickets issued for flights after this date will be refunded in full.”

Let’s hope this refund comes through soon!

Long troubled Transaero has finally thrown in the towel and the filing for bankruptcy seem imminent with a shutdown of operations coming soon!

Best Credit Cards

Aeroflot has been in talks to take over the carrier lately and is offering to honor tickets but only until December 15th 2015.

I have never flown Transaero – mostly because I expected a shutdown for years. But you will be missed!

If you are holding tickets on a later date – call your credit card company and dispute the charge if nothing comes of it use the travel insurance that most cards offer.
