Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation and Aeroflot Group signed a letter of intent on Wednesday during the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) to provide 339 aircraft by 2030, according to a TASS journalist who was present at the signing. The agreement envisages the delivery of 210 MS-21 planes, 89 SSJ New planes and 40 Tu-214 planes.
The first two SSJ New aircraft would be delivered to the Russian flag carrier in 2023, when deliveries are anticipated to start. The Russian Industry and Trade Ministry announced in a statement that six MS-21 and seven Tu-214 aircraft are scheduled to be delivered the following year.
For the deal, the first reliable contracts with Aeroflot are scheduled for 2023–2025. Denis Manturov, minister of industry and trade for Russia, predicted that the deal’s total worth will exceed 1 trillion rubles.
It’s unprecedented, he claimed, to enter into a deal for the supply of more than 300 different models of aeroplane for more than 1 trillion rubles.
