Before the end of 2004 the Aeroflot airline will get five new planes Tu-154M
Before the end of 2004 the Aeroflot airline will get five new planes Tu-154M, deputy general director Igor Desyatnichenko told the RIA Novosti press conference. "We'd like to expend our presence on the Russian market, for which our management and board of directors have approved the decision to buy the Tu-154M's. One plane has already arrived and we hope to get the remaining four before the year end", he said. The arrivals will have to be updated to meet the requirements of today, he noted. "Minor updating will be done, particularly in the interior and avionics". It is very possible that Aeroflot will also buy new Il-96M's, Desyatnichenko said. "It will be a no simple deal but we hope to have them before the end of 2006". The key manager of Aeroflot stressed that its principled position is "ordering only what has been manufactured, tested and certified. There are no such planes except the six Il-96 now in the making in Voronezh", Desyatnichenko said. "Our airline is not going to fund the manufacture of planes", he noted. In winter Aeroflot will increase the number of international and domestic routes. A noticeable increase will be in the directions Vienna, Prague, Nice, Frankfurt, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Dubai, Delhi. Passenger and freight numbers will increase to Tokyo, Munich, Milan, Cairo. "We also try to optimise flight coordination for our clients to have the maximal access to the air-route network and minimal service time in the airports", Desyatnichenko said. The rising fuel prices will impair the development of air transportation, another deputy general director Lev Koshlyakov told the RIA Novosti press conference. "The growth of prices on the market of aviation fuel and lubricants may dim the development prospects of the sector and many carriers may not come up to it", he said. Koshlyakov noted that members of the air transportation market are going to take steps to end the dangerous tendency. According to the information cited at the press conference, in the last ten months the price of aviation kerosene has changed seven to ten times in most Russian airport
