RUSSIA: Aeroexpress answers one of the most popular questions about their new double-decker trains - yes they will have plugs!

Earlier this year Aeroexpress and Stadler have announced results of negotiations on the issue of double-decker trains purchase. The operator company will buy 11 trains out of which 9 units will be six-car and 2 will be four-car vehicles. The first passengers will be able to appreciate the new rolling stock in December 2016 when the trains start their operation on the Paveletsky station — Domodedovo airport route. In 2017 double-deckers will start carrying passengers to Vnukovo airport.

The new double-decker trains are 3400 millimetres wide and 5240 millimetres high, and are designed for the weather conditions in Russia, where temperatures can range from –50°C to +40°C. The trains can reach maximum speeds of up to 160 km/h and feature a comfortable, welcoming interior design with two classes (Business and Economy). The carriages are made of aluminium, which makes them much lighter than traditional steel carriages. Thanks to the lightweight design of the vehicles, a great deal of energy can be saved in everyday operation.
