ransaero Airlines (UN), Russia’s second-largest carrier, is expected to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Airbus Friday for A380s, ATW learned from a well-placed source. If the MOU is signed, it would make UN the first carrier in Russia and the CIS to order the A380. Deliveries are expected to start no earlier than 2015.
UN could not be reached for comment, but in August CEO Olga Pleshakova revealed the company was analyzing possible orders for the A380 and/or the Boeing 747-8 (ATW Daily News, Aug. 19).
The A380s/747-8s would be used to replace older 747s and expand the carrier's fleet from 2015 onward, Pleshakova said. She noted the final decision will “be based upon deep research of commercial offers, the Russian aviation market situation and airport infrastructure development.”
According to Russian media, Moscow Domodedovo (DME) airport is analyzing the installation of double-deck passenger boarding bridges for A380 use. UN would deploy the A380 from DME, but reportedly Emirates has also indicated interest in operating the A380 to DME.
In August, UN signed an MOU with Airbus to buy eight A320neos plus options on an additional four, making it the first A320neo customer in Russia, the CIS and Eastern Europe (ATW Daily News, Aug. 17).
Privately held UN is historically a loyal Boeing customer and operates 70 aircraft, comprising 19 747s, eight 777s, 13 767s, 27 737s and three Tupolev Tu-214s. It operated an Airbus A310 from 2000-2002. It is the largest operator of widebodies in Russia, CIS and Eastern Europe.
