KrasAvia inks for three Ilyushin Il-114-300

Krasnoyarsk, Russia - Russian charter operator KrasAvia is planning to add three Il-114-300 to its fleet, following the decision by the Russian aircraft manufacturer Ilyushin to restart production of the aircraft.

The Il-114-300 is a revamped version of the Il-114, which was developed in the 1990s and had a limited production.

Krasnoyarsk-based Russian carrier has recently revealed that it signed a letter of intent with Ilyushin for three Il-114-300 turboprop aircraft.

The company calls the aircraft as an ideal solution to link remote areas to each other and the major cities since the Il-114-300 is able to operate in low temperatures and does not require full ground service.

The current regional fleet of KrasAvia consists of a few Antonov An-24s and An-26s, plus Yakovlev Yak-42s, among other types. Some of these planes are already stored to be used as spare part donors.

KrasAvia expects to receive its planes from 2024.
