Rosaviaconsortium contracts IATA on the Frigate Ecojet program
21 June 2011
Frigate Ecojet project team, initiated by the JSC FPG Rosaviaconsortium, has hired the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to conduct a survey to evaluate the market potential for a new generation wide body medium haul civil aircraft.
IATA Consulting will evaluate the potential market volume and demand for the new aircraft. They will also evaluate future fleet requirements and will cluster responses about ideal aircraft characteristics (operational and economics). The survey will include leading international network airlines, low-cost and hybrid carriers.
IATA’s survey will complement initial efficiency simulations conducted jointly by the Frigate Ecojet team and Siberian Airlines on the new aircraft’s economics which suggest a high potential for the new aircraft on this carrier’s current network.
