The Russian company Aeroflot will face a serious shortage of aircraft parts due to Western sanctions. To maintain the efficiency of the fleet, it will be necessary to dismantle part of the aircraft in three months.

It is reported by Bloomberg .

According to IBA experts, Russia will not be able to replace Boeing and Airbus products in the near future, so some aircraft will have to be used for spare parts. 

It is noted that due to Western sanctions, Aeroflot has sharply reduced its foreign route network. So, as of February 24, the company operated flights to 56 countries, and by mid-May – to 13. In addition, passenger traffic also decreased.

“For the foreseeable future, Aeroflot will be largely a domestic airline,” said Arnold Barnett, an aviation safety expert at MIT’s Sloan School of Management.

As UNIAN previously reported, in March, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law allowing Russian airlines to use aircraft from foreign lessors despite their ban.

At the end of March, the largest leasing company in the world, AerCap, filed a $3.5 billion lawsuit against Russia for stolen aircraft.

  1. Good. The chimps of mafia land don’t need to fly anywhere anyhow, and no one needs to visit mafia land. Put a high and sturdy fence around the shithole and let it rot … or burn.
