HistoryEdit

The airline was founded in the spring of 2008 by S7 Airlines, a major Russian airline, based in Novosibirsk for charter flights. Globus started operations shortly thereafter with a Tupolev Tu-154M, which was previously in use at the parent company. Another Tupolev Tu-154M and the first Boeing 737-400 were transferred from S7 Airlines to Globus later in the first year of operation, followed by second-hand Boeing 737-800 aircraft.[citation needed]

By December 2008, less than a year after its founding, the rapidly growing airline was sold by its parent company S7 Airlines to the East Line Group.[citation needed] Its purpose was to concentrate on flying to holiday destinations.[2] From 2010 Globus has been operating mainly regular domestic services, however still in cooperation with its former owner, S7 Airlines.[1]

In August 2019, the airline's head announced that S7 Airlines and Globus Airlines will merge till December 2019, therefore closing the operations of the second airline.[3]
