Russian Airline Selects Goodrich Hooks for Newest
Goodrich Corporation has entered
into an agreement with Aeroflot Russian Airlines to provide wheels
and brakes for their new Airbus A319/A320 fleet of 18 aircraft. The
new aircraft will enter into service this year.
According to Keith Campbell, Director Airline Sales, "Aeroflot's
decision demonstrates its confidence in our A319/A320 wheel and
brake product, support and global services. Winning this business
is only the first step. At Goodrich we will build upon our well
established, strong foundation by continuing to support Aeroflot
with both reliable and cost effective equipment."
Established in 1994,
Aeroflot's history dates back to 1923 -- the dawn of civil aviation
in the Soviet Union. Aeroflot has traditionally been the number one
carrier in the USSR, and later, Russia. With more than five million
passengers, Aeroflot is carrying on the great tradition of Russian
aviation. Aeroflot provides service to 108 destinations in 54
countries and operates 210 commercial aircraft.
Aeroflot predicts that the Russian airliner market will require
over 400 new aircraft of 80+ seat capacity by 2015.
