Russia’s S7 Airlines adds another Airbus A320neo
The airline is gearing up to re-start international service on August 10
Russia’s S7 Airlines has taken delivery of an Airbus A320neo (MSN 10016) on lease from SMBC Aviation Capital. The Pratt & Whitney PW1127G-JM-powered aircraft is the fourth of an eight aircraft deal with the lessor. The aircraft arrived at Moscow Domodedovo airport from Toulouse on June 27, and will be operated under registration number VQ-BSD.
S7 has taken a proactive approach to the COVID-19 induced downturn, and continued operations through the lockdown. In the last three months ending June 30 the airline outperformed Russia’s flag carrier Aeroflot and has become the market leader. Starting June 1, S7 Airlines had resumed flights across its entire domestic route network and is now preparing to benefit from the gradual re-opening of international air travel by re-starting service to Antalya and Dalaman in Turkey from August 10.
S7 operates a mixed fleet of 61 Airbus A320ceo/neo family, 23 Boeing 737-800 and MAX-8, and 17 Embraer 170. The previous new Airbus A320neo joined S7’s fleet in March this year.
