Aeroflot has so many old Russian aircraft. Will they ever replace the ones like the Il-62 and the Il-86 and the Tu-134 and the Tu-154? If they did, what would it be with?

Hi there,

Aeroflot now flies the Boeing 777, 767, 737 and Airbus A310 on many of their prestigious international routes. However, it's in the airlines interest to buy new Russian aircraft whenever possible because the cost is less and it's good public relations.

I believe that Aeroflot has some IL-96M's on order as well as some TU-204's.

Aeroflot only has the 767's and 777's until the Ilyushin 96M comes out. The Ilyushin 96M will be almost as good as a 777. Western avionics and engines, Russian airframe and wing.

The A310s have replaced some of the IL62s they previously flew - they kept the 62s for a long time due to their long range, something in which even the IL86s were rather deficient. The 767s and 777s have since followed, along with some 737s. The cost of these western planes is higher so that they are forced to be used on international routes where the hard cash earned could be used to upkeep the planes. On the internal and CIS routes the older planes still predominate.

Aeroflot has some IL-96 300s, M's and T's on order but there have been many delays in having them built, hence their opting for western planes which they could have more readily.

Hop to it, fly for life!

The Tu154s are fine. But I would like to see Tu204 Il96 (more) and Tu334.

Well, looks like Finland is considered CIS bcoz SU usually flies TU154s on their SVO-HEL route they are the only regular TU154 operator at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, sometimes Malev also flies TU154s to Helsinki.

Aeroflot don't need to replace their russian aircraft, seeing as they are better than a lot of more expensive western aircraft.

Ok, TU-204's and 214's are going to eventually replace TU-154's. IL-62's are here to stay for some time, so are IL-86's - they're good on dense European and inter-CIS routes. Some IL-62's and IL-86's are going to be replaced by IL-96-300's and IL-96M's.

Anyway, I hope that Russia gets over its crisis and will become a major force in aviation once again.

Aeroflot will need new aircraft, american, european or russian, since many of their types are getting a old and are not fuel effecient. First, they needs lots of money.

An-225, Russia will pull itself out soon enough. The switch from communism to capitalism is tough, but they will prevail.

Aeroflot operates the B737-400 in SVO-HEL route also and with its nice color scheme!


 Big thumbs up

I think Aeroflot will likely get a bunch of Il-96M-300's and Tu-214's for their domestic routes, replacing the older Il-62's and Tu-154 models.

Aeroflot will have to anyway given the fact Eastern Europe is starting to adopt ICAO Stage III noise emission rules.
