It is understood that efforts to recover the Ural Airlines Airbus A320 from the field in Novosibirsk will stop, as the aircraft is expected to be scrapped for parts.
There were efforts ongoing over the last few months to apply repairs to the aircraft so then it could depart from the field and land in an airport to be brought back to commercial service.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Ural Airlines To Scrap Stuck Airbus A320 in Novosibirsk…
According to FlightMode, a Russian Telegram channel, financial constraints were the cause of this decision to be made to scrap the Ural Airlines Airbus A320 in Novosibirsk.
It is understood that any usable parts of the aircraft that are still working will be removed from the aircraft and used on other jets in the Russian carrier’s fleet.
A Ural Airlines scheduled passenger flight from Sochi to Omsk made an emergency landing in a field in the western Siberian region of Novosibirsk back in September.
Russia’s Interfax news agency reported that there were 159 persons aboard the aircraft, an Airbus A320.
According to the Russian Tass news agency, the aircraft had sounded an alarm to a hydraulic systems failure; however further details of the emergency landing has not yet been formally released.
There are no reports of any injuries sustained in the off-airport landing.
All eyes will now be on the scrapping of the aircraft, which is expected to take place this Summer, before the lease made by Ural Airlines with the owner of the farm comes to an end.
