"Transaero" from debt reduction to capacity building


The situation surrounding the purchase of the company "Transaero"Just beginning to flare up at this, experts still believe that the management of the air carrier could produce the so-called" reset ", thus starting its activity at lower capabilities but without debt.



Until now, the situation around the debt of the Russian air carrier "Transaero" was very vague, and just a few days ago there finally appeared data that as of June 1, 2015, the total debt of the airline "Transaero" to creditors amounted to 250 billion rubles. The amount is really colossal, and even if we take into account the fact that the activity of the air carrier with each subsequent month will be profitable, in fact, it will most likely take at least 12-15 years to return all debts, which casts doubt on the possibility of the further existence of the air carrier. Nevertheless, there is an assumption that if an air carrier decommissioned most of its aircraft and continues to operate, then within a few years it will be able to return to its previous, pre-crisis level.



Based on data submitted by the airline "Transaero" on the site, it follows that at the moment fleet carrier includes 106 aircraft, including:

  • 20 aircraft Boeing 747;
  • 14 aircraft Boeing 777;
  • 18 aircraft Boeing 767;
  • 47 aircraft Boeing 737;
  • 2 aircraft Airbus A321;
  • 2 Tu-204S;
  • Tu 3-214.



Depending on age, the cost of a passenger airliner can vary within wide limits, however, given that the average age of the aircraft carrier is 16,4 years, when the study is likely to repel it from that figure.

Using the tools of the global computer web, editorial portal Avia.pro was found that the optimum value of a passenger airliner 1999 year is:

  • Boeing 747 - 12 million. Dollars;
  • Boeing 767 - 16 million. Dollars.


Current aircraft have been selected by our experts based on the fact that they are the best representatives of the age "Transaero".



Thus, refusing to operate 38 aircraft (20 aircraft Boeing 747 and 18 aircraft Boeing 767), the air carrier can reduce its debt to creditors to 215 billion 680 million rubles. The refusal to operate another 17 passenger airliner Boeing 737, the cost of which varies on average about 7 million dollars per unit, 14 Boeing 777 airliners costing an average of 40 million dollars, and 2 Airbus A321 airliners, whose optimal cost is about 40 million. Dollars, the air carrier can reduce the debt to 166 billion rubles. Of course, the amount of debt will be quite significant, but given the fact that the Transaero fleet will still have 35 passenger airliners, the air carrier will be able to gradually reduce its debt to a minimum, and it will only be possible in a few years. In addition, it is possible that on the basis of the existing airline it is possible to organize a low-coster, which, given the large fleet of aircrafts, could bring a much larger profit.



According to some data, operation of passenger aircraft Boeing 737, when 80% of its load, brings an air carrier amount 3,5 million rubles, from which it must be assumed that the proper operation of the entire fleet, the remaining debt will be pay off for about 47,5 thousand flights that when making only one flight per day, during the operation of 35 aircraft will completely eliminate the debt for less than 4 years and more for 5-6 years, the air carrier will be able to return to his old fleet.

Naturally, in such a situation may be nuances, but, in fact, the current solution can become quite correct.


Kostyuchenko Yuriy specifically for Avia.pro

Yes, indeed, that the waiting workers "Transaero", they simply throw, comforting in the media that will not throw - "dramatically", but gradually, and even warning in two months, not insult it?

I totally agree. The government issues instructions, creditors are making every effort to return loans, passengers are told that their interests will be respected, but no one talks about people who have done and are doing their job 100%, about pilots, flight attendants, and technical personnel. Thanks to the airline's deceitful policies, these people came to Transaero from different parts of our country, transporting families and taking loans for housing in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Can anyone ever remember them ??? Who will pay off their loans and take care of their families?

Planes aircraft, and the author thought about how many people have to cut, if cut fleet of aircraft. They will be thousands. And the chain will reduce those companies which cooperated with the airline. It is better to think about what to do with people, not with the aircraft, mathematician
