The representative of S7 explained to RBC that the aircraft would be returned to Turkey at the request of the lessor as in the near abroad.
The use of 737-8 MAX aircraft was banned in Russia in March 2019. Re-certification was not carried out.
Russia resorted to such a measure after two plane crashes that happened to the Boeing 737 MAX. In October 2018, a MAX 8 operated by Indonesian Lion Air crashed. Then 189 people died. The second accident with a Boeing of the same model occurred on March 10. In Ethiopia then crashed a plane belonging to Ethiopian Airlines. 157 people became victims.
In Russia, the only operator — S7 airline. Under the S7 brand, two Boeing 737 MAX flew in the airline “Globus” until the type certificate is cancelled.
In late February, the US, UK, EU and other countries closed their airspace to Russian aircraft and imposed a series of sanctions. Among other things, a ban was introduced on the sale of aircraft and spare parts to Russia, as well as on the provision of maintenance and insurance services to Russian airlines. Leasing companies began to delay airliners leased by Russian companies at airports.
Rosaviatsia recommended that air carriers that have aircraft under foreign lease suspend flights abroad. By the end of June, the number of countries where Russian companies continue to operate flights amounted to 11.
