When did Aeroflot get it's first western aircraft? Also, were they A310s or 737s?

They had never used any western gear during the cold war years, did they?

Aeroflot's first western equipment were the A310-300s which were aquired in the early 1990s after some complex negotiations. The aircraft were a mixture of new and second hand aircraft, the latter coming from Pan Am/Delta and Diamond Sakha.

Next came the 767-300 (I think) which then left the fleet when the 777-200 arrived. The airline has 2 777-200s powered by the GE90 engines.

Recently some new 767-300s were ordered which have since been taken delivery of.

Aeroflot also had (I don't know if it still has it) a single DC-10-30F to operate cargo flights.

The 737-400s were only delivered fairly recently, in the last couple of years. Are there 10 of them?

You can check all the current Aeroflot fleet at:

Just click on the appropriate aircraft type!

Glad to be of help

I seem to remember seeing a DC-8-60 in AFL colors on the cover of Airliners Monthly News about 10 years ago.
