Aeroflot abandoned passenger Superjets and Tu-214 aircraft

45

The Russian airline Aeroflot announced its refusal to purchase SJ 100 and Tu-214 passenger aircraft. The carrier announced plans to receive 339 aircraft, while stating the need to supply only MC-21 generation aircraft.

The general director of the company, Sergei Aleksandrovsky, explained this step by shifting the term of the “right” contracts. Aeroflot will be supplied with aircraft in basic and short versions (MS-21-300 and MS-21-200, respectively).



It is important to note that the MC-21, in terms of its technical characteristics, is closest to the foreign Boeing and Airbus airliners used. Western sanctions have raised the question of the further operation of foreign aircraft, and a possible solution lies in the purchase of aircraft from leasing into full ownership of the Russian side. The transport department promised to allocate an additional 295 billion rubles for these purposes.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Industry and Trade and Rostec are forced to admit the fact of postponing the supply of passenger aircraft SJ 100, MS-21, Tu-214 and Il-114-300. Among the reasons cited is the shortage of domestic analogues designed to replace foreign parts as part of import substitution. At the same time, the head of Rostec, Sergei Chemezov, during SPIEF, confirmed plans to produce more than 500 airliners by the end of 2030.

    What we can't do, we'll buy

    Is this what the “reformers” preached in the 90s? It turned out that politics is more important than economics and trade. The USSR did not depend on anyone, because it could do everything ITSELF.

    So the SJ 100 and Tu-214 are now in the museum? Will the billions spent on them simply be written off? Yeahhhh.... Our Russian "managers" are the coolest! Pride is bursting!

      I don’t know about the Tu-214... it’s already a “museum exhibit”, just like the engines for it, but according to the SJ 100, it’s of a different class than the MS-21. And until the problem with the engines for it is solved (PD 8), it will POSSIBLY be assembled by the Arabs. Who will put American Pratt & Whitney on it. Which, in fact, is practiced all over the world.

      Only Aeroflot refused. In addition to Aeroflot, there are other airlines.

      And what is Aeroflot’s fault? It is an “operator” company. And if the industry is not able to provide it with the ordered planes that HE is willing to pay for, then what should it do?

        And he (Air Ass) needs to stop government support and go bankrupt. These fat cats have completely stopped catching mice and are still turning their tails on the state. Bankrupt, take property to pay for debts and lawsuits, create a state-owned company with a domestic fleet of aircraft on the basis - taxes and income to the treasury. The staff of the new company will receive 50% of the current salary; no one will be taken from Aeroflot. So let's win!

    Nevertheless, we cannot give up our aircraft, even for the reason that this industry is somewhat similar in parts and instruments to military aviation. Not to mention the fact that many passenger airliners can be adapted for military needs.

      By the age of 30, 500 pieces will be made! (They promised a thousand)!.
      Well, maybe until the age of 50 it’s not 500, but less...

      Perhaps so.
      But in 2018 there was an accident in the Sharik, when the passenger compartment of the Superjet burned down along with the people, the middle of the cabin (passengers) were poisoned by combustion products, the rest, having lost their minds, ran out with their luggage with crazy eyes onto the concrete. The Super Duper Jet has only 2 exits, so fly it yourself.

    Is Aeroflot a private or state company? How many state shares? How many billions of taxpayers' money went to support Aeroflot? If private owners have the majority of shares there, then it is necessary to deprive it of state support. We have a market. Filling with Russian planes is a state program, if Aeroflot does not fulfill it, then Aeroflot must be nationalized. Aeroflot is a brand of the Russian state, not a private company.

    Well, you can ignore the frequency of news about problems with planes. And then the flight was delayed due to a breakdown, or something else. The fleet is aging, and we won’t see any service from the manufacturer. Everyone remembers what happened to the President of Iran.

    The deal is that they are holding out until the sanctions are lifted so that, as before, they can sit on Western technology and receive kickbacks. It is clear that in the foreseeable future there will be no serial MC-21. Manturov also benefits, since this refusal justifies spending on the MS-21, although there is no plane...

    Among the reasons cited is the shortage of domestic analogues designed to replace foreign parts as part of import substitution.

    The most logical step would be to temporarily locate TU-214 production in China. And purchase all the aircraft produced there, at the same time carry out modernization and prepare for their release in Russia. There is no point in throwing rotten tomatoes at our industry. Times and leaders were different in the 90s. And in the USA, things are not so great with Boeing.
    We must remember the experience of South Korea. They didn’t throw their first cars (buckets of bolts) into the trash, but improved them. hi

      And they forgot to ask the PRC. Why will they develop the Russian Federation? The PRC has its own narrow-body aircraft, if the Russian Federation needs it, then order Chinese planes, but the PRC will not sell it, due to sanctions. Russian industry needs to be developed. I wrote it a long time ago.
      There are strategic and tactical goals and objectives. Most discuss tactical objectives. The release of IL-96 is a strategic goal of the Russian Federation and it is not correct to discuss how much kerosene it will consume. Let the Russian government pay for kerosene. If you are chasing savings for the sake of the collapse of the development of your aviation, then take a horse, it eats hay and does not need kerosene. If we approach the state regulations, then we need to produce 2024 four-engine IL-200s by 96. There is everything for the production of IL-96. All aircraft will be transferred to a state company. Let the design bureau develop a new aircraft with new engines from scratch. The same can be said about the TU-204/214.

    Are you laughing or was it just a rough weekend?
    What the hell are 200 Il96s if today they produce 1 unit every 1.5 years?
    And where can you fly them, 200 of them? Even during the heyday of air travel in the USSR, its “big brothers” Il86 (of which it is a modification) were produced only a little over 100 units.
    Il96 today is not needed by anyone except the Special Squad "at all". Well, maybe they’ll take another 3-5 pieces to transport boxes

      About 200 pieces, this was written in 2009, at that time Boeing and Airbus ruled the roost, 14 years passed, but it only got worse, even then it was clear that the Russian aviation industry was heading into the abyss. The time will soon come when Boeing and Airbus will stand on the ground in the Russian Federation. What are you going to fly on, if you don’t need the Il-96, name the type of Russian aircraft.
