Aeroflot To Resume SVO-BOM. Equipment?

Sun Jan 18, 2004 6:24 pm

the Times of India reports that Aeroflot is set to resume the bi-weekly SVO-BOM flights. probabl code-shared with AI. However the report says the route will be operated by Tupolev Tu-124 aircraft! Highly unlikely!

What is the aircraft they plan to put on this route? Tu-154 or Il-62?

Indeed, Tu-124 does sound very unlikely since the type is completely retired. I would imagine something like a Tu-154, Il-86 or B767 on the route. I'm not very sure what the passenger loads on SVO-BOM would be, whether Tu-154 would be too small or Il-86 too big.

Given the number of Russian tourists/businessmen who visit India and the number of Indian businessmen who visit Russia, I guess an IL-86 can be filled quite easily.

SU uses its IL9s and 772s on its SVO-DEL-SVO services, both of which I have flown on this route. I do not expect SU to use its TU5s on its SVO-BOM-SVO route, but rather either its IL8s, IL9s, 772s, 763s or 313s.

The equipment is a "T20" according to Amadeus. What is a T20, a Tu-204? Does SU operate Tu-204's?

Yeah, the T20 is a TU-204/214.

Hmmm 204 in the new livery would be nice.....
One of the major Russian billionaire shareholders in Aeroflot is also heavily into getting the 204 going... But apart from that I know nothing else on the matter.

The flight was initially supposed to be a 763 according to my sources, but Aeroflot is notorious for juggling equipment so we probably won't know for sure until the first one appears over the horizon!

Are Aeroflot going to be flying the proposed Moscow-EDI route or is it the rumoured transavia(whoever they may be). Anyone know?
NOT THE DUTCH TRANSAVIA

Actually, just managed to get another source confirm it will be a Tu-214 operation initially.

Aeroflot doesn't operate TU-204/214 at all. It doesn't operate IL-62 on regular international flights .
Seems, they will use IL-96 and A310 while it is still in service.

But there have been rumors in the Aviatsia.ru Forum that SU will be getting a few Tu214 (e.g. for the Bomboy flights), one or two IL62 (for an african or south american flight, do not remember which) and even a few YAk 40 for domestic operations...

Oh yes they do!

.. well kind of ... They operate the Il-62M, Tu-214 and Yak-40 again now, but that is just because a certain other airline has just been absorbed by Aeroflot and part of the agreement was to keep these aircraft and their crews.

Anyone want to guess what airline it was?

By the way, the code for the Il-86 is ILW (IL8 was the Il-18).

Not sure if the TU204 can do BOM SVO direct. It would be a IL96 or 777, the same equipment they operate to DEL.

SU does indeed start services with the TU214 from Sunday. SVO-BOM-SVO. It would be configured with 16J/146Y.

This configuration is correct, according to timetable though the type is not specified.

Does the TU214 have the legs to fly a 6-7 hr nonstop SVO-BOM route?

I don't know which airline it absorbed, but I can also confirm use of TU-204 on Aeroflot routes, as they are published in the Aeroflot timetable....

I'm sure it does, or else they wouldn't be operating the aircraft on the route.  Laugh out loud

The SU Tu-214 thing has already been discussed on the aviatsiya.ru forum and SU is NOT taking over STC Russia, they're only wet-leasing some of their a/c (214, YK4, IL6) to operate on certain routes. It looks like SVO-BOM may be one of them.

Data on the TU-204 series from A.net :

Powerplants

Tu-204 - Two 158.3kN (35,580lb) Aviadvigatel PS90A turbofans. Tu-204220 - Two 191.7kN (43,100lb) Rolls-Royce RB211535E4 or 535F5 turbofans.

Performance

Tu-204 - Cruising speed 810km/h to 850km/h (437 to 460kt). Range with max payload 2430km (1312nm), with design payload 3400km (1835nm). Tu-204220 - Speeds same. Range with max payload 4600km (2483m).

Weights

Tu-204 - Operating empty 58,300kg (128,530lb), max takeoff 94,600kg (208,550lb). Tu-204220 - Operating empty 59,000kg (130,070lb), max takeoff 110,750kg (244,155lb)


BOM SVO would be a 7-8 hour flight at the very minimum. Doesn't look like the TU214 would make it........it must be "via" somewhere - maybe Sharjah or DXB ??

"SVO-BOM flight time is 7h 15m according to timetable."

No - that's the 'block' time, i.e. including taxiing, the flight itself, taxiing upon arrival and small delays. The actual flight time will be less, probably 6 hours 50 mins or something. To illustrate, the block time between Liverpool and Belfast Intl. varies between 55 minutes and 1 hour. However, the actual flight time is normally always 30 minutes. The remaining 25 mins-30 mins is for taxiing, small delays, etc.
