Russian airlines, including Aeroflot, began dismantling planes to provide spare parts for other planes. This is reported by Reuters, citing four industry sources.

Russian airlines began dismantling planes for spare parts

One of the agency’s interlocutors knows that the Sukhoi Superjet 100 and Airbus A350 aircraft (both operated by Aeroflot) are already on the ground and are being dismantled. At the same time, the Airbus A350, according to the agency, is almost new.

Reuters also verified information from Flightradar24’s flight tracking database. It turned out that 15% of the passenger planes in the Aeroflot fleet had not taken off since the end of July, and three of the seven Airbus A350 planes had not taken off in the last three months.

Likewise, according to the source, equipment was seized from several Aeroflot Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 aircraft in order to supply spare parts to other aircraft of the same models.

The Russian ministers and Aeroflot did not respond to queries from Reuters.

After the start of the special operation in Ukraine, the EU countries imposed sanctions against Russia, which affected the aviation industry. In addition to the termination and the impossibility of concluding aircraft lease contracts, the sale of spare parts to Russian airlines, repairs and the provision of insurance services were also prohibited.

In June, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov (now head of Roskosmos) admitted that part of the foreign fleet could be dismantled to guarantee flights for at least another five years.
