10 декабря 2009 22:10

«Koltsovo» International Airport has been authorized to receive the new type of aircraft AN-148.

The admission order to operating was signed on the eve of a representation of the Ural inter-territorial management of air transport. According to the prospects of development of the aviation sphere, AN-148 is eventually to replace the outdated An-24 and TU-134. The newcomer is ready to boast of high fuel efficiency and economy, making it most suitable to operate near-and medium-haul flights.

Obtaining such clearance will allow the Airport «Koltsovo» to expand the range of opportunities for partner airlines. Thus, the first domestic operator of AN-148 is planning to implement a number of flights from Saint Petersburg to Ekaterinburg precisely by this type of aircraft. The joint plans of airport and the operator are in the possibility to open a number of other airways from «Koltsovo» by AN-148.

It is worth noting that during the year 2009 this has been the third issued clearance to accommodate new types of aircraft, after the previously obtained permits for aircraft Embraer-170/190 and A-330. As for AN-148, it is a short-range aircraft with transporting capability for 70 to 90 passengers. It has maximum range of 5 thousand miles and cruising speed of 820-870 kilometres per hour.
