In 2018, Aeroflot Group was considering the potential purchase of 30 Boeing
737 MAX 8 jets
But in early 2019, Aeroflot changed its mind and narrowed the initial potential
order to 20 Boeing 737 MAX 8s.
For now, none of the Aeroflot Group subsidiaries owns Boeing 737 MAX planes.
With the exception of Pobeda, Planespotters.com indicates that they operate a
monogamous fleet currently consisting of 44 Boeing 737-800 planes,
while the average fleet age stands at 4.2 years.
This will be the last of new Boeing aircraft in Russia as the Max is still banned
from operating in over Russia.
The move was taken as the group planned to acquire more Russian-made
commercial passenger jets instead of foreign planes in the airlines’
Fleets of the Future.
