The Russian industry intends to supplant the domestic market for foreign long-haul aircraft Boeing and Airbus. This was stated by Vice-Premier of Russia Dmitry Rogozin at the Congress of the Union of machine builders in Moscow, reports “RIA Novosti”.
“Due to the decisions that we Mature and which have already actually taken by the President, we then go to the displacement from the niche long-haul aircraft “Boeing” and “airbase” today in our market 80% representation. It’s just an untenable situation,” — said Rogozin
The current state of Russian civil aircraft industry he called a “disgrace”. “Well that’s a shame. In a country with so many time zones, we fly on foreign aircraft, which are no better”, — quotes Rogozin RNS.
