Air carrier Red Wings, based at Yekaterinburg’s Koltsovo airport, will lease four repaired Tu-204/214 aircraft. This was reported by two sources close to the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC).
“After undergoing repairs, one Tu-204 and one Tu-214 will be handed over to the airline in the spring of 2023. Another Tu-204 and Tu-214 Red Wings will receive in the spring of 2024.
Specialists will have to perform a form of maintenance on aircraft, then replace or extend the life of the units. For two aircraft, this will be done by the spring of 2023, for another two, the deadlines will be slightly longer, since major repairs of engines are required there. The owner of the aircraft is the Ilyushin Finance Co. company, which is part of the UAC.
