Published annually, Fortune’s international rankings are compiled by editors who consider four criteria: the size and importance of the woman's business in the global economy; the health and direction of the business; the progression of the woman's career; and her social and cultural influence.

It is the third year in a row that Pleshakova has featured in the U.S. business magazine’s “Most Powerful Women” listing.

This year, for the first time, Fortune organized its rankings regionally, with separate lists for EMEA, Asia-Pacific and North America.

Olga Pleshakova has been CEO of Transaero, the largest privately- owned international airline in Russia, since 2001. She is the first Russian women to lead a major airline.
