On 26 October, barring any last minute change of status, Transaero will cease operations. Over the past two days, the airline has sent about two dozen aircraft into storage in Teruel, Spain. Teruel is the location of Tarmac Aerosave, an aircraft maintenance, storage, and recycling facility. It is the same facility where a number of UTAir aircraft are also stored.

Most flights to the storage facility have used the callsign format “TSO87XX”, where XX is the last two digits of the flight number. To track any additional storage flights, set a callsign filter for “TSO87”.

The table below shows the aircraft we have been able to track to storage so far and we will update this post if additional aircraft are designated for storage.
