On August 22, 2005 Federal Service for Transport Supervision has suspended the operation of Ilushin 96-300 aircraft until some diagnosed construction and production defects are fixed by the manufacturer.
This decision compels Aeroflot-Russian International Airlines company to introduce some changes to the flight schedule as well as to replace the above aircraft with other types of vehicles on some airlines.
In this complicated situation Aeroflot will do its best to fulfill the obligations to the passengers. Please, accept in advance our apologies for possible inconveniences in connection with the flights’ schedule changes. I rely on your understanding.
Detailed information on schedule changes could be obtained:
