In total, the carrier has four Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft.
The media reports on the disassembly of two of the four domestic Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft for spare parts. This decision was made by the Yakutia Airline in relation to the boards leased from the State Transport Leasing Company.
The Vedomosti newspaper, referring to its sources, the leadership of Yakutia decided to disassemble the planes after their inspection.
It will be impossible to restore the sides: they no longer have marching power plants and other basic spare parts.
The Irkut enterprise, where SSJ 100 is produced, reported that carriers will not be able to buy parts – Western sanctions are in effect in the country.
In addition, neither the engine nor the model of the aircraft received certificates.
At the same time, GTLK is preparing to withdraw the liners from Yakutia – lease agreements will be terminated.
The airline has accumulated a debt to the lessor in the amount of over 1.5 billion rubles. And at the same time, in 2021-2022, Yakutia allocated significant subsidies from the state budget.
The interlocutors of Vedomosti also revealed that Yakutia may have up to 80% of the fleet of aircraft faulty.
According to the Federal Air Transport Agency, the carrier has only 15 aircraft left for November 2022. Although the website of Yakutia says about more than 20 boards of Western and Russian production.
Recall that airlines in Russia have been sanctioned. Unable to obtain insurance, spare parts, new aircraft, carriers began to disassemble the aircraft for parts.
As Topnews wrote earlier, in August 2022, Reuters was the first to report “cannibalism” in the aviation industry. Aeroflot was one of the first to start disassembling its aircraft for spare parts.
