Russian Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsia) and the Russian Aviation Register have completed the procedure for validating the type certificate for the A320neo family. Relevant supporting documents were transferred to Airbus.
The type certificate applies to A320neo and A321neo aircraft equipped with both types of engines (Pratt & Whitney’s Pure Power PW1100G-JM and CFM International’s LEAP-1A).
The first operator of this type in Russia will be S7 Airlines.
Obtaining a type certificate from the Russian aviation authorities is an important step in the introduction of the A320neo family into commercial operation in Russia.
