Russian carrier Aeroflot has announced that it has signed a contract with Airbus to purchase five Airbus A321s. It has not yet said when the planes would be delivered or how much the airline paid for them.
Separately, Aeroflot has also stated that it will buy six IL-96-400s. Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov expressed yesterday his hope that "a contract for the purchase of six such planes for Aeroflot will be prepared before long". The contract for the airplanes will be signed tomorrow when Ivanov visits Voronezh, Russia, where the IL-96 is built.
