Polet Airlines new IL-96 plans

To achieve this goal, Polet Airlines has leased three IL-96-400T aircraft from Ilyushin Finance Co to bring them into commercial operation by autumn 2009. Furthermore, the aircraft fleet will be extended by acquisition of three additional IL-96-400T aircraft in 2010-2011.

The wide body IL-96-400T is the first cargo aircraft of this type, manufactured in Russia.
It is planned to operate flights serving the key hubs at different world regions including Europe.
A special emphasis is placed on Munich Airport, which was selected as the main operational base in Europe.
