Transaero Airlines announced that it will be adding a second Boeing 747 aircraft to its Flight of Hope charity project.

The airline’s project allows passengers to make donations on various flights to fund the treatment of children with serious heart, brain, and spinal cord illnesses.  Donations are managed by the Life Line charity fund.

The aircraft is decorated with colorful handprints form Russian celebrities and Transaero volunteers.  The plane is also outfitted with in-flight Internet, which allows passengers to make donations while in flight.

Transaero first launched its Flight of Hope charity project in November 2013, and since then, it has raised over four million roubles ($69,684), which has helped pay for complex operations for 27 children.

Last month, Transaero and the Amur Tiger Center announced a joint effort to protect rare and endangered species such as the Amur tiger.
