First TU204-300 delivered to Vladivostok-Avia. Will be used on Moscow-Vladivostok.
First Tupolev that meets international noise and emission requirements.

Will we see it in Europe (or even US?)?

Quoting AMSSFO (Thread starter):

Tupolev can hardly meet the Russian market demands which means that it is a little unlikely that they will ever be able to export the product to Europe or the US.
They need huge investments to be able to do so since they need support and parts for the aircraft.

It is great news though. Many are becoming bored with the duopoly of Airbus and Boeing (both fine products btw) and a third major airliner manufacturer will be great but a little difficult at present.

no, they won't sell them to europe, if they will it will be freighters to TNT, but we already have 757's flying wich are actually a bit better performing, and boeing closed the line because the demand wasn't there anymore because there were so many produced already....
