Aeroflot takes delivery of four A320 family aircraft
Russia’s flag carrier Aeroflot has taken delivery of four new Airbus A320 family narrowbody aircraft. Three of these are A320s (registration codes VP-BFA, VP-BFG and VP-BFE); the remaining one is an A321 (VP-BFQ).
According to open sources, the four aircraft were built in the winter and spring of 2017.
The three A320s share the same cabin layout, configured for carrying 158 passengers: eight in business and 150 in economy. The A321 features a double-class cabin with a total of 183 seats: 16 in business and 167 in economy. This configuration is more crowded compared to the airline’s typical 170-seat layout for the type.
The airline does not specify the total number of A320 family aircraft in its fleet with the newly delivered airliners factored in. Based on previous reports, the carrier may now have 35 A321s and 70 A320s. As of June 1, the airline also operated 25 Boeing 737-800 narrowbodies, 37 widebdy airliners (22 Airbus A330s and 15 Boeing 777s), and 30 Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) regional jetliners.
