Aeroflot Expands Fleet With New B737-800, A-320 Aircraft

Airplanes Named For Luminaries In Soviet Literature And Academia

Aeroflot has taken delivery of its fourth Boeing B737-800 Next Generation and its 91st Airbus A320. The airline has named the 737-800 NG in honor of Soviet and Kyrgyz writer Chingiz Aytmatov, while the new A320 bears the name of the Soviet and Russian linguist, critic, writer and academician Dmitry Likhachev.

Aeroflot’s Boeing 737-800NG has a two-class configuration with 20 seats in business class and 138 seats in economy. The business class salon is equipped with monitors for viewing media content. All Boeing B737-800 aircraft are delivered to Aeroflot directly from the manufacturer. The Boeing 737 is one of the world’s most popular single-aisle jet airliners, providing a high level of comfort on medium-haul routes.

All Airbus aircraft are received by Aeroflot directly from Airbus manufacturing plants. The airplanes are designed in two-class configuration and can carry 116 (A319), 140 and 158 (A320) and 170 (A321) passengers. Today Aeroflot’s fleet includes 91 A319/320/321 aircraft with an average age of five years. These aircraft provide services on European and Russian domestic routes.
