Aeroflot is going to buy 4,400 foreign aircraft this year, although we are talking about toy models, the Pilot project found out .
The cost of such a purchase will be about 28 million rubles. Probably, the purchase is made in the marketing interests of the company.
Recall that due to sanctions, Boeing and Airbus aircraft are no longer supplied to Russia. Against this backdrop, Russian airlines have taken to disassembling planes to secure spare parts they can no longer buy abroad. The moves are in line with advice the government has given airlines to use parts from some aircraft so that the remaining foreign-made aircraft can continue to fly until at least 2025.
A month ago, it became known that Russian airlines, including Aeroflot, due to sanctions restrictions, asked the Federal Air Transport Agency and Rostransnadzor to allow maintenance of foreign aircraft at extended intervals. Last week it was also reported that Russia will start producing passenger planes that will not be able to carry passengers.
Since the middle of last year, the number of serious accidents in Russian aviation has been growing rapidly . According to experts, the main reason is Russia's complete unpreparedness for sanctions and the lack of control over the quality of parts that are now bought from partners from "friendly countries" without the necessary certification.
