Mikhail Baghdasarov: criticism of Superjet contributes to producer’s responsibility

 President of Armavia air company Mikhail Baghdasarov said that the company is going to put the first Superjet aircraft into operation in February-March 2011.
Currently, pilots and technical staff are being trained, Baghdasarov said in an interview with RBC daily.
In future, the Superjet aircraft is planned to fly not only to Moscow, but also to all 22 Russian destinations of the company – Saint Petersburg, Krasnodar, Rostov-on-Don, Novosibirsk, etc.
As for the criticism of the project, Baghdasarov said that it is advantageous for Armavia, as criticism contributes to a responsible attitude of the producer towards its output.
Baghdasarov added that he will take the first flight of Superjet aircraft.
According to him, Armavia has a contract on supply of five Sukhoy Superjet aircrafts.
He added that it is early to speak about terms of the aircrafts supply. “We will exploit two regional CRJ 200 aircrafts. Besides, we are going to purchase Boeing 777 to implement flights to Bangkok and Los Angeles. As you see, we negotiate on accessing the American market,” Baghdasarov said, adding that the company plans to operate 30 aircrafts by 2014.
