Yakovlev and Aurora Airlines signed an agreement on the supply of MC-21 aircraft
PJSC Yakovlev (part of PJSC UAC of Rostec State Corporation) and Aurora Airlines signed an agreement of intent for the supply of 10 MC-21 aircraft from 2027 to 2030 within the framework of the VIII Eastern Economic Forum. The document was signed by Andrey Boginskiy, Deputy General Director for Civil Aviation of the UAC, General Director of PJSC Yakovlev, and Konstantin Sukhorebrik, General Director of Aurora Airlines.
The agreement fixed the key terms of transaction, which will later be reflected in supply and lease agreements. In accordance with the signed document, the first two aircraft are to be delivered by the end of 2027. All liners will be transferred in stages until 2030.
"The airline is confident about its future and is planning future aircraft fleet for mainline destinations. Passenger traffic on them continues to grow, and we need an aircraft that will make it possible for us to keep a high level of service for passengers. We connect the largest cities of the Far East with each other and through them our entire network with the largest airports in Siberia," commented Konstantin Sukhorebrik.
"Today, increasing transport accessibility of socially significant regions is one of the priorities for aviation industry. As the leading manufacturer of civil airliners in Russia, Yakovlev is doing everything to fulfil it, and another important step in this direction is signing an agreement of intent with Aurora Airlines. I am sure that with new locally produced MC-21 aircraft, the airline will be able to maintain and increase passenger traffic in the Far East," said Andrey Boginskiy.
MC-21 is a new generation medium-haul passenger aircraft with a capacity of 163 to 211 passengers. The airliner is focused on the most demanded segment of the passenger transportation market. MC-21 is manufactured according to the latest developments in the field of aircraft construction. Advanced aerodynamics, engines and avionics of the latest generation provide high flight performance and reduced operating costs compared to analogues. Aerodynamic perfection of the aircraft is achieved with a wing of greater aspect ratio made of composite materials. Engines with a high bypass ratio PD-14 are distinguished by low fuel consumption, reduced noise levels and emissions. The widest fuselage in its class provides more personal space for passengers.
