I presume the Tupolevs will be used by Air Bridge for regional cargo service, while keeping the 747s (and the AN-124s from parent Volga-Dnepr) on long range routes and on routes where the size is needed.

As for the TU-204s ordered by FV, I presume they may use them to replace their older TU-154s (especially the remaining B2s they may currently operate) and the remaining TU-134s.
