According to the envoy, China is prepared to provide Russia with aircraft parts.
It is speculated that Russian airlines are now faced with the difficulty of sustaining their fleets of Airbus and Boeing aircraft in order to ensure the continuity of domestic and international flight services. It must now obtain replacement parts in order to resume operations. So, according to reports, China has agreed to sell components for A320 and B737 type aircraft, which could benefit Russian airlines such as Aeroflot.
Aeroflot and S7 Airlines are two of Russia’s largest operators of Western-made aircraft, with Airbus and Boeing planes accounting for the majority of both carriers’ fleets.
As per source The Russian Airlines are being offered delivery of the aircraft parts by China, according to the Chinese envoy to Zhang Hanhui stated that they were prepared to supply aircraft parts to Russian airlines and organize cooperation. while speaking to the news agency TASS he gave assurance that “no constraints from our side”.
In response, the Russian government took a number of measures, allowing local carriers to keep utilizing aircraft they had leased or rented from international firms. But it represents a dramatic shift in Russia’s neighbor’s position. China reportedly refused to provide Russia with aircraft parts, possibly out of concern for Western retaliation. In addition, China recently announced that it will forbid numerous foreign-built planes operated by Russian airlines from overflying the nation. Due to the numerous sanctions that accompanied the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Russian airlines have been having difficulty obtaining aircraft parts.
As per a recent information, in March 2022, China refused to get around the restrictions and supply aircraft parts with Russia the allegation has not been substantiated.
