One more (the 23d) Airbus A320 was added to Ural Airlines’ fleet of vehicles recently. This time, the aircraft was purchased in Japan, where the plane had been used by a local air carrier for four years, or 4,000 hours. Just like the previously acquired planes, this one was bought on operational lease terms. The airplane has both the business and the economy class sections and will be used for operating scheduled flights.

In fact, the new aircraft will already be used to operate a Yekaterinburg-Moscow flight today, the airline’s press service reports.

Ural Airlines launched in fleet upgrade program in 2006. The European concern Airbus’s A320/321 family of aircraft was chosen as the primary model for the new planes. These airplanes are the most efficient and comfortable choice for medium-haul flights.

The air carrier is planning to expand its Airbus fleet of vehicles to thirty units by 2014 and to buy long-haul aircraft for operating non-stop flights to Thailand, India, and Indonesia.
