“Russia is in the group of the world’s top ten leaders in terms of demand for Airbus planes. Our latest forecast shows that the demand for airliners seating more than 100 passengers will total 921 planes from 2007 to 2026, including 793 narrow-body and 128 wide-body aircraft worth $79 billion,” Vadim Vlasov said.
