The staff of the magazine "Aviation and Time" congratulates "Aerosvit" the glorious anniversary and publishes an interview on the eve of the general director of the airline, GA Gurtovoiy gave the employee "AIV" AY Sovenko. - Grigory Abramovich, all 9 aircraft "Aerosvit" - "Boeing" (two B-767 and seven B-737). What explains the choice of aircraft of this particular manufacturer? - 10 years ago, creating an airline, we were faced with the problem of choosing a particular type of aircraft we needed (BC). Need a medium-range places in the machine 100. In this case, we proceeded from the principle that the handling and possession of airplanes - two completely different businesses. The problem is that they have the same cycles. For example, if something did not work in the global economy of transportation, it is immediately reflected in the cost of the aircraft. That is, the airline has already suffered from the negative effects of transport on the market situation, but if it also serves also as the owner of the aircraft, the gets a double whammy - both in its core business, as well as on its assets. By the way, the crises of recent years in the airline industry it is confirmed that the airline should focus on monobiznes - its task is to carry passengers the most efficient, convenient and fast. Therefore, it is important to have access to technology offered by the leasing companies. Ten years ago, the availability of aircraft manufacturing consortium Airbus has been limited. They did not get us in the right price range and were not represented in the class liner 100 seats, the minimum capacity in the Airbus family had A-320 - 150 seats. A model that could interest us, in the secondary market appeared much later. Therefore, we chose the time between McDonnell Douglas and Boeing companies. We started with 100-seat Boeing 737. By the way, the situation on the market is just the opposite, and if we started a business today, the configuration of our fleet, might have been very different.
