RBC: Airlines flying Superjet face US spark plug shortage
MOSCOW, March 17 – RIA Novosti. Airlines flying Superjet 100 regional jets face American spark plug shortages red blood cell.
“This jeopardizes the implementation of the flight schedule for the transport of passengers, including those of social importance,” Vladimir Panfilov, First Deputy Director General of IrAero, quoted from the broadcast.
As the authors of the article noted, American spark plugs are required for Russian-French SaM146 engines. Panfilov warned that this problem could lead to “the shutdown of part of the Superjet fleet in the near future and the gradual complete cessation of flights of the entire fleet.”
The material also clarifies that other Superjet operators are also facing a shortage, including the airline Rossiya, which is part of the Aeroflot group.
However, a Rostec spokesperson said that import substitution of essential components for Superjet aircraft, including spark plugs, is in full swing. The UEC added that a result is expected this year in direct spark plugs.
In addition, the press service of the Ministry of Industry and Trade assured the carriers that all necessary measures were taken to provide the necessary details.
Savelyev said that airlines in Russia did not damage any aircraft
