Fleet

Aeroflot Group’s fleet development strategy is based on the following principles

  • operating a highly unified aircraft fleet (limited number of aircraft types in each segment)
  • operating a young fleet
  • improving the average seat capacity and efficiency of aircraft
  • increasing the share of modern Russian-built aircraft used in operations

For more than a decade, Aeroflot Group has been consistently refreshing and streamlining its aircraft fleet to improve its operating, environmental and technical efficiency. In 2019, the Group operated eight types of aircraft with an average age of 6.9 years. Aeroflot airline’s fleet is one of the youngest in the world , with an average age of 5.0 years as at the end of 2019.

Aeroflot Group’s fleet composition and development reflects the specific business models and route networks of each airline.

Aeroflot Group added nine new aircraft to its fleet in 2019. A total of 16 aircraft were phased out over the same period. The 2019 net fleet decrease was seven aircraft. However, given the additions of the previous year, average fleet size increased by 5.5% year-on-year. Aeroflot Group operated a fleet of 359 aircraft as at the end of 2019.

There was preparation under way in 2019 to bring online new wide-body Airbus A350 aircraft that will gradually replace the Airbus A330. The first out of a total of 22 contractually committed aircraft was added to Aeroflot airline’s fleet in early 2020.

Aeroflot airline’s aircraft fleet evolution

Aeroflot airline’s fleet includes five types of aircraft with two to three travel classes. As seat capacity in comparable narrowbody aircraft is different between Business and Economy classes, we can adjust the Business to Economy ratio for more effective, demand-driven capacity management.

Two wide-body Boeing 777-300ER aircraft were added to Aeroflot airline’s fleet in 2019, while net fleet decrease was eight aircraft. As at the end of 2019, Aeroflot airline had 245 aircraft, including 40 wide-body aircraft, 156 narrow-body medium-haul aircraft and 49 regional narrow-body aircraft.
