Transaero Airlines launched a new low-cost ticket option on Tuesday, called Discount Class.

Discount Class fares are subject to a number of rules, including luggage weight restrictions of 10, 15, or 20 kilograms depending on the ticket tariff.

While free drinks and food, including meals on more lengthy flights are included, special meal options are not provided or available for purchase.

Transaero Privilege frequent flyer program members can earn points on Discount Class flights, although they will do so at a 50% rate.  Program members can also redeem points for award tickets for Discount Class seats.

Discount Class fares are available on select flights from Moscow Domodedovo Airport to a number of domestic and international destinations, including London, Berlin, Vienna, Barcelona, Rome, Milan, Tel Aviv, Saint Petersburg, and Sochi.

On its first day of service on January 14, Transaero sold approximately 5,000 Discount Class tickets spanning 54 flights on Boeing 737 and Tu-214 aircraft.
