MOSCOW, February 16 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s flag carrier Aeroflot will buy 17 new planes.
“This year we will get three A-321 planes and five A-330 planes, this is the aircraft of high quality, all passengers like it, and nine Sukhoi Superjet planes that should be supplied as scheduled,” the air carrier’s director-general, Vitaly Savelyev, told a news conference at Itar-Tass on Thursday.
He noted that if the board of directors “supports this, we will buy new aircraft this year.” “But this aircraft will be of this very class – new, modern, high-technological that are made by the world’s best producers.”
The air carrier’s fleet has six Il-96 planes.
“They will be slowly decommissioned,” he said.
