Aeroflot 777-300ER Enters Service

Aeroflot says it has received permission from Russian aviation authorities to operate its new long-haul 777-300ER. The carrier immediately put the aircraft into service, following the “long-awaited” green light, which was received on February 4, 2013. The aircraft is the first to be delivered of 16 ordered by the airline in 2011. Aeroflot said it was planning to provide services on 777-300ERs, in co-operation with other SkyTeam airlines, on international routes during the Winter Olympic Games being held in Sochi next year and the football World Cup in 2018.
