During Visit of PRC Chairman Jiang Zemin to Russia Questions of Cooperation in Area of Transport Aviation Will be Discussed.
On 15 July an official visit to Russia of the PRC Chairman Jiang Zemin will begin. It is expected that during the visit possible purchases by the Chinese civil airlines of Tu-204, Tu-214, and Il-96 passenger airplanes of Russian manufacture and cooperation in the area of transport aviation will be discussed.
China is intending to buy nearly 1,000 cargo and passenger aircraft through 2020.
According to other sources China is intending to purchase 30 Tu-204/214s which will be used by China's domestic airlines.
Does anyone know anything else about this?
Such deal can really save the CIS aircraft industry!
