At an aviation exhibition in LE BOURGE Ilyushin Finance, UAC, Atlant-Soyuz sign aircraft leasing memo 16-06-2009


The Russian leasing company Ilyushin Finance Co, the United Aircraft-building Corporation (UAC) and the Atlant-Soyuz air carrier have signed a memorandum of understanding on the supply and financial leasing of 45 passenger aircraft.
Under the arrangement Atlant-Soyuz will have 30 regional Antonov-148 planes and 15 medium-haul Tu-204 airliners. The leasing contract is to be concluded by September 1, 2009.
An-148 will be handed over to the client over a period of three years, starting from 2010, and Tu-204, over a period of two years, starting from 2010, the general director of the Ilyushin Finance Alexander Rubtsov told to AIN.
The cost of the supplies will total 1.2 billion dollars. The contract is to be effected over a period of five years and will be the biggest in the modern history of Russian civil aircraft and guarantee stable contracts for companies affiliated with UAC and Russian Technology corporation (Rostekhnologii).
The Atlant-Soyuz press-service has told AIN the first An-148-100 planes will enter service in 2010. A likely network of routes is being charted for them. Later, the manufacturer will provide the longer fuselage An-148-200. The company's fleet of An-148 planes is to be completed over a period of three years, from 2010 to 2012.
The Tu-204SM medium-haul airliners will be provided over two years, starting from 2011.
Atlant-Soyuz builds its aircraft fleet development strategy on the basis of mostly domestically manufactured technologies. The company is determined to take the position of the biggest operator of Russia-made planes.

I read some articles before about that but I didn't know the airlines was Atlant Soyuz.
Interresting to read they want to be the biggest operator of Russia-made planes.
Seems after a long time, An-148 is starting to take off with Aerosvit, Rossya and now Atlant Soyuz.
Good news as most of ailines are flying Western planes now, even in Russia (thanks to Red Wings, Atlant Soyuz, Vladivostok Air to buy home made planes).

Congratulations to all companies involved. Personally I like both planes, and are happy to see their success.

By the way. What are the An-148 and Tu204 current backlog?

It's good to see the upturn in fortunes for the TU204, especially considering that so many Russian airlines have added A320s and 757s over the last few years. I often wonder whether these Russian airlines would really prefer to take an improved, more reliable and efficient TU204/214 in an ideal world - and assuming the Russian travelling public are just as happy to fly on them as their Western equivalent aircraft.

I'm going to MAKS this year so have been looking into the status of the TU204s, and some interesting recent developments appear to include the return of some of the early built aircraft, this includes the two with Air Koryo (new to Vnukovo Airlines), the other early pax version that was new to Vnukovo (64011) now in service with Aviastar-TU and most interestingly the Bravia RR-engined prototype and two other pre-production aircraft have gone back to the factory maybe to be overhauled and put back in service. Also the two Rossia aircraft (64014 and 64015) have also flown recently after many years in storage.

So it seems that with the exception of the four original prototypes stored at Zhukovsky, and also 64008 at VKO which appears to be beyond redemption, the rest of the TU204s so far produced will be in active service soon. Any Russian spotters able to tell us more?

Atlant-Soyuz made a quite predictable step.
All their present base is IL-86 charters - which will be prohibited even in Egypt next year.

As a Russian I am glad that these order were be placed for Russian aircraft (or Russian built in case of AN-148).

Though I am more interested in MS-21 project and NK-93 engine.
If these two things work by 2015 - it would serious.

Manufacturing one regional SSJ (which actually is going to be used not on regional but medium routes and one medium range single aisle would be absolutely enough for the Russian aviation industry.

Great see the TU-204 carry on its a beautiful aircraft and better than the 757  duck 


Anything the US and EU build the Russians do it better! i.e. TU-144 vs Concorde and TU-154 vs The 727...

According to ch-aviation, two of the prototypes have already been scrapped, and other examples are also stored. I'll second the request to our Russian friends to provide us with an update.

I can't open the link.
Could you please tell us what is it about?

It's not about overall number of TU-204 flying around, is it?

It is a list of all Tu-204s built, stating to which operator they belong and mentioning their status.

Try www.ch-aviation.ch , go to "Fleet Lists" and then select Tu-204 as "Aircraft".

Well 64002 and 64005 were static test frames - the four I was referring to are 64001/3/4/7. I am sure that 64014/5 are no longer at Bykovo either.
