Russian flagship carrier Aeroflot has announced an order for six Boeing 777-300ERs and two 777-200ER variants, as the airline prepares to cater for an expected demand following a number of upcoming sporting events over the next several years.

“These Boeing 777 airplanes will strengthen our network strategy, particularly the international growth opportunities we expect from our joint businesses with SkyTeam partners when servicing the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games and the 2018 FIFA World Cup,” Aeroflot general director Vitaly Saveliev said.
