According to the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov, by 2025 Russia plans to produce 10 Tu-214 aircraft per year, with only two or three such aircraft produced per year now.
“In order to provide a safety net for the medium-range MS-21 aircraft, we are increasing production volumes of the well-known Tu-214 aircraft produced by the Kazan Aviation Plant. We expect to reach 10 machines per year by 2025 and we will gradually increase the production volume of the MS-21 aircraft,” said Denis Manturov.
According to Sergei Chemezov, head of Rostec, there are plans to deliver more than 70 Tu-214 and Il-96 aircraft to air carriers by 2030. The need for them, as well as the import-substituted MS-21 and SSJ-100, is due to the termination of Airbus and Boeing aircraft deliveries to Russia, as well as the refusal of European countries and the United States to maintain and supply spare parts for the Russian airlines’ existing fleet.
