Rostec: Boeing and Airbus are unlikely to ever be delivered to Russia

During the Eastern Economic Forum, held in Vladivostok from September 5 to 8, an agreement of intent was signed between the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) and PJSC Aeroflot, under which the Russian airline will purchase more than three hundred modern aircraft.

The main feature of the document, signed by UAC CEO Yuri Slyusar and Aeroflot CEO Sergei Aleksandrovsky, is the entry into the Russian market of imported domestic aircraft, which are designed to replace Western brands that have left Russia.

Boeing and Airbus aircraft, which are unlikely to ever be delivered to Russia again, will be replaced by domestic passenger liners

- said the CEO of Rostec Sergey Chemezov.

According to Chemezov, 300 of the 339 airliners purchased by Aeroflot are Superjet and MS-21 aircraft. The latter is intended to become the flagship of the Russian aircraft industry, which embodies the modern design ideas of Russian specialists.

Rostec also has high hopes for the Tu-214, which was previously produced under special orders. The liner has proven itself during operation.

I note that all aircraft will be delivered in an import-substituted form - with on-board systems and units of Russian production.

- emphasized Chemezov.

    There is only one question: are the aircraft certified in Russia and for Russia, or what? Boeing and Airbus at one time captured Russian airspace due to the war of certificates (every year they introduced a new one and so that domestic aircraft did not correspond to it). What will happen next?

      "Later" will come in 10-15 years. There is no point in waiting.

      They will be non-departing, and fly around the world through foreign airlines like North Korea

    So it's not about waiting, but about what needs to be done in advance. Do not live on the principle of "after us."

    The main mistake of the West is not only that they forbade their aircraft to be sold to Russia, but that Russia is then forced to start producing its own aircraft, which are more inexpensive and, therefore, competitive in third countries, thereby displacing Western aircraft, due to their high cost.

    The problem is that small series are more expensive than large ones. Airbus made 500-600 aircraft a year
    And also the statements of officials that they failed import substitution ...

    No matter how it turns out again - "the state order has not been fulfilled, Putin slightly scolded"

    Oligarchs will fly on the domestic? Not a word....
    And according to the media, they had 500 personal funds (albeit with helicopters) .... more than the 339 airliners given ....

    Well, of course. When more than 1000 a320, 319,321 and b737 aircraft of various models were delivered, they already allegedly understood what trap they had fallen into. But of course they will not be held accountable for this sabotage. Stupid and losers, or criminals who deliberately undermined our aviation industry. How now to meet the needs of airlines, given the declared number of aircraft produced tu214, su, ms21 per year?? Yes, and that's a big question on ms21. It is not surprising if, at the end of 2024, Manturov again croaks about how bad these Westerners are, that they again limited something to us ...

    The keyword is "acquired" and not "acquired"
    This will. Probably... Sometime... Probably sometime maybe :)
    And one more question. And how much will tickets cost for flights on these "purchased" aircraft
    Or am I sure I can't fly? Because they will only be available to the "middle class"?
    With an official salary of $15000+, which of course everyone in our country already has....
    How much the Russian bourgeoisie, which seized the domestic aviation industry (and "earned" on its destruction)
    How much will she charge us Russians?
