UTair jumps to Airbus

 

UTair Aviation (Russia) (Khanty-Mansiysk) has signed a firm contract with Airbus for 20 A321 aircraft during the Farnborough Airshow. This is the largest order for the type received from a carrier in the region and the first time that UTair has ordered Airbus aircraft.

UTair’s A321s will feature a single-class cabin layout seating 220 passengers. The airline is planning to operate these new aircraft to further develop its charter network of popular leisure destinations.

UTair was founded in 1967. The airline is operating a fleet of some 200 aircraft to over 60 domestic and some 40 international destinations.

  • UTair was not founded in 1967. In 1967 in Soviet Union there was the only airline – Aeroflot. In 1967 in Tyumen was created Tyumen Department of Civil Aviation, which was reorganized into Tyumenaviatrans airline, and which was later in 2002 called UTair.
