Russian Orders In The Works

Tue May 15, 2007 12:32 am

From Flight Global:

But now Kaliningrad-based KD-Avia is seeking at least 20 aircraft with options, which will not necessarily be Boeing types despite the carrier's reliance on leased 737s so far.

Later this year industry is expecting to see a tender for narrowbodies from the newly constituted AirUnion company that brings together the interests of Domodedovo Airlines, KrasAir, Omskavia, Samara Airlines and Sibaviatrans and is 45%-owned by the Russian government.

Will be interesting orders. I see KD Avia going B737NG and Air Union going A320.
Flown: A319/320/321,A332/3,A343/346, A380,AT4,AT7,B732/3/4/5/7/8/9,B742/4,B762/763,B772/77W,CR2/7/9/K,ER3/4,E70/75/90/95, F50/70/100,M11,L15,SF3,S20, AR8/1, 142/143,...

Quoting Flying-Tiger (Thread starter):
45%-owned by the Russian government.

This may end up as political as the SU A350/787 order!
