According to Deputy Prime Minister Denis Manturov, 63 aircraft are expected to be supplied to Russia’s national carrier Aeroflot between 2023 and 2025 as part of the government’s subsidised aircraft leasing programme.
The airline will get 34 SuperJet aeroplanes with import substitutes, 18 MC-21 aircraft, and 11 Tu-214 aircraft. The National Wealth Fund will be used this year to provide 175 billion rubles ($2.5 billion) for the Aeroflot aircraft programme, according to the Deputy Prime Minister. Additionally, Manturov stated that individual investment project profiles are scheduled for approval in 2023 in accordance with directives from other airlines.
At the meeting, Mr. Manturov said, according to the state-run news agency TASS, ” “The Ministry of Economic Development is putting the finishing touches on the necessary regulatory framework modifications. The Ministry of Finance will transfer the funds to the lessor through the redemption of bonds as soon as this task is shortly completed.”
It was announced in November that the switch to domestic booking systems had been finished by all 53 Russian airlines. 308 locations have been accepted by the Federal Air Transport Agency as part of the programme to subsidize regional air travel for 2023; 9 billion rubles will be set up for the program’s implementation.
