Recently,in chinese aviation forum feeyo.com

http://bbs.feeyo.com/posts/509/topic-0011-5093141.html

There is a post dedicated for reason why PVG has so few direct routines to Russian cities compared with PEK.

UN actually operated DME-PVG before...but dropped it.

I should say SU eyes more on Chinese market than before,pity they constantly open and drop CAN routines...

Officially confirmed, that 35 are dead and 180 were injured. Together with russians, 1 citizen of UK is among dead, citizen of Italy, France and Slovak Rep. are among injured...
I still cant believe it can be true, DME is the biggest airport of the country and actually it was safe, as we can see now, not fully... RIP

It's absolutely ridiculous how there seems to be a tragic event happening every day.

Russian airport explosion kills at least 31
Lynn Berry, The Associated Press: Monday, January 24, 2011 3:01 PM

MOSCOW - An explosion ripped through the international arrivals hall at Moscow's busiest airport on Monday, killing at least 31 people and wounding about 130, officials said. The Russian president called it a terror attack.

The state RIA Novosti news agency, citing law enforcement sources, said the mid-afternoon explosion at Domodedovo Airport may have been caused by a suicide bomber.

Amateur video posted on YouTube showed the terminal engulfed by smoke, with a pile of bodies in one section and other bodies scattered around the floor. Luggage lay strewn across the ground and there were several small fires. A dazed man in a suit pushed a baggage cart through the carnage.

"From the preliminary information we have, it was a terror attack," President Dmitry Medvedev told officials in a televised briefing.

He ordered authorities to beef up security at Moscow's two other commercial airports and other key transport facilities, including the subway system, the target of past terror attacks. He said the explosion demonstrated that security regulations had been breached.

Medvedev postponed his planned Tuesday departure for the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where he was to give the opening address on Wednesday.

Although there have been repeated attacks on the Moscow subway and on Russian trains - most blamed on Chechen militants - the bombing Monday was the first involving a Russian airport since 2004.

Sergei Lavochkin, who was waiting in the arrivals hall for a friend to arrive from Cuba, said he saw emergency teams carrying bloodied people out of the terminal.

"I heard a loud bang, saw plastic panels falling down from the ceiling and heard people screaming. Then people started running away," Lavochkin told Rossiya 24 television.

Mark Green, a British Airways passenger who had just arrived at the airport, told BBC television he heard the huge explosion as he left the terminal.

"Literally, it shook you," he said. "As we were putting the bags in the car a lot of alarms ... were going off and people started flowing out of the terminal, some of whom were covered in blood."

"One gentleman had a pair of jeans on that was ripped and his thigh from his groin to his knee was covered in blood," he added.

Green said thousands of people were in the terminal at the time of the blast.

Sofia Malyavina, a spokeswoman for the Social Development and Health Ministry, said 31 people were killed and about 130 were wounded. She said 56 ambulances were sent to treat the victims.

"The airport is filled with smoke," she said on Rossiya 24.

Built in 1964, Domodedovo is located 26 miles (42 kilometres) southeast of the centre of Moscow and is the largest of the three major airports that serve the Russian capital, serving over 22 million people last year. It is generally regarded as Moscow's most up-to-date airport, but its security procedures have been called into question.

In 2004, two suicide bombers were able to board planes at Domodedovo by buying tickets illegally from airport personnel. The female bombers blew themselves up in mid-air, killing all 90 people aboard the two flights.

Currently 77 airlines offer regular flights to Domodedovo, serving 241 international and national routes, according to airport's website.

The airport insists that security is one of its top priorities, claiming on its website that its "cutting-edge operations technology guarantees the safety of passengers' and guests' lives."

Terrorists have previously targeted other transportation centres in Moscow.

Twin blasts in the subway last March killed 39 people and wounded more than 60 people. Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov claimed responsibility for that attack, warning Russian leaders that "the war is coming to their cities."

In December 2009, Chechen rebels claimed responsibility for blowing up a high-speed train between Moscow and St. Petersburg, an attack that killed 26 people and injured scores.

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said he was "deeply disturbed" by the reported terror attacks.

"I strongly condemn it," he said on Twitter. "NATO and Russia stand together in the fight against terrorism."

I'm also knew about death of Ukrainian citizen Anna Yablonskaya.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Yablonskaya

Anna Yablonskaya (1981-2011) was born Anna Grigorievna Mashutina in Odessa, USSR (now Ukraine). She was a Russian-language playwright and poet, and one of the victims of 2011 Domodedovo International Airport bombing.

Under the pseudonym Anna Yablonskaya, she published over a dozen playscripts. Many of them were staged at venues in Russia, in particular, in St. Petersburg — the last city she visited just a month before her death. Since 2004 Yablonskaya received several awards in different literary and dramatic events in Russia (Moscow, Yekaterinburg) and Belarus (Minsk). She also wrote a series of lyrical poems.

Half an hour before the explosion Yablonskaya arrived in Moscow on a flight from Odessa to attend the presentation ceremony as one of the 2010 winners of the award established by the Cinema Art magazine.

Thanks for sharing

By the way, do you think Transaero is likely to resume its flight to Hong Kong anytime soon?

The Hong Kong - Moscow route is currently operated by Cathay Pacific, Aeroflot and Hong Kong Airlines. Given that the number of Russian tourists recorded a sharp increase by 100% under the visa-free arrangements between Hong Kong and Russia, I reckon it will be sustainable to have 1 more airline in this route, hope we can see Transaero again in future.


PS. God bless all the victims

Well, i agree its good that the market is growing, and i am happy. But seems like there are not enough tourists for 4 airlines, 3 is quite enough, they satisfy a demand.. ANd Transaero product is not a high product in terms of entertainment and servivce. Although Hong Kong route was supposed to become one of the major routes. As you maybe know, Transaero have 4-class planes (777 and 747), sugesting Imperial 1st Class, Business class, Premium economy and Economy, and at that times when they had Hong Kong flights in their schedule, they were offering good alternative to other carriers in the way i will explain. Clients who bought a business class ticket used Imperial 1st Class salon, if you buy Premium Economy you used Business class salon, so on this route there were 3 classes, and buying Premium econ while using and getting all privileges of a Business class pasenger was a great alternative! They use the same scheme on Beijing, New York and Miami routes now...I think its all made for advertising and making their service more popular, but still Hong Kong route was closed )
