The event was held in the presence of Rais from the Republic of Tatarstan, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Tupolev PJSC Rustam Minnikhanov. The document was signed by the head of the Sakha Republic, Aisen Nikolaev, and the managing director of Tupolev PJSC, Vadim Korolev.

The government of the Republic of Sakha has expressed interest in acquiring Tu-214 aircraft for the fleet of the republican airline Yakutia. According to the UAC, the details and terms of the contract will be further discussed by the parties. According to Yakutia Airlines, by 2030 they may need up to 12 Tu-214 aircraft.

It must be said that many Russian airlines are considering the Tu-214 as the base model of the aircraft in their fleet. Remember that the Tu-214 is a modification of the Tu-204, first taken into the air in 1996. Developed at the Tupolev Design Bureau to replace the Tu-154. Equipped with PS-90A engines. According to experts, this is just the aircraft that, under the conditions of the sanctions that have fallen on Russian civil aviation, is the easiest to put into production. It does not contain foreign spare parts, so it does not depend in any way on shipments from abroad.

Aviators have always considered this aircraft a worthy competitor to Boeings and Airbuses. In terms of a number of characteristics, they are comparable, and in terms of flight range, the Tu-214 has a significant superiority – it can fly at a distance of up to 6.5 thousand km. Foreign cars – less.

It was previously reported that UAC had already started production of 20 Tu-214s and by 2030 it intends to produce 70 more.
