MOSCOW, February 23 (Itar-Tass) — One of Russia’s biggest airlines, Transaero, plans to buy six Sukhoi Superjects, according to the airline’s top executive Olga Pleshakova.
“We hope to receive two first jets in 2015,” she told journalists. “In all, the contract has six jets and an option for ten more. The contract will be signed in the nearest future.”
In 2044, Transaero signed a contract on the purchase of ten Tu-214 planes, of which three has been already delivered. “We have agreed with the management of the United Aircraft Company to replace Tu-214s with Superjets,” she noted and added that the airlines had received “a worthy financial leasing offer.”
According to Pleshakova, at the initial stage Superjets will be used to make flight in Russia’s northwestern regions. “In Moscow, they will be used at the Vnukovo or Domodedovo airports, depending on the market condition for short-distance flights, but primarily we target St. Petersburg’s Pulkovo airport,” she said.
Transaero’s fleet consists of 76 jets, including 19 Boeing-747 planes, 12 Boeing-777 planes, 13 Boeing-767 planes, 29 – Boeing-737 planes, and three Tu-214 jets. Apart from that, by 2015 the company plans to begin operating the world’s biggest Airbus A-380.
