VI has not bought any aircraft as yet. I don't know where you got the information regarding that CX747, but check your sources again; it seems they have given you bum information.
The subsidiary is still in the planning stages, and a tender for the aircraft will be called for in due course.
The aircraft (probably 747-400Fs) will be used for freight flights from Moscow to China; to counter the 3 weekly services offered by CZ
(later to become daily).
The reason I know that no aircraft have yet been signed for, is that VI
has not received approval from the Russian authorities to import the aircraft into Russia; this will be a reasonably long and drawn out process for the airline, which is why they will start studying ways to get around the import tax regime which stops a lot of Russian airlines from importing aircraft into the country.
is also in the process of trying to gain traffic rights to Western European countries and also USA/Canada. This will allow them to exploit the China-Europe and China-America/Canada markets.
What this would mean to the current VI
fleet is that the Il-76TDs will probably be phased out, and will also mean another nail in the coffin of the Il-76MF/TF project, as VI
was expected to be a major customer for the aircraft.
