Description: The Tu-204 is a twin-engine, medium range family of aircraft capable of carrying from 164 to 210 passengers and/or cargo at ranges from 4,100 km to 5,800 km. Provided with state-of-the-art equipment, the Tu-204 aircraft family outstands by its compliance with western standards for low operating costs, cabin comfort, low noise level and low fuel consumption. The aircraft is fully compliant with Russian and European airworthiness standards. Originally, it was intended as a replacement for Soviet Tu-154 airliners but political turmoil and program slow run have doomed these plans.

The Tu-204 aircraft family includes the Tu-204-100/120 airliner; the Tu-204C freighter; the Tu-214 jetliner featuring increased maximum take off weight, payload and range over its predecessors; and the longer range Tu-204-300 airliner with decreased seating capacity, shortened fuselage and a maximum range of 5,800 kilometers. Production of the Tu-204/214 aircraft family is being carried out at Russian aircraft plants in Ulianovsk (Aviastar-SP) and Kazan. The first Tu-204-100 aircraft was certified by Russian authorities in 1994 and the Tu-204-120 powered by Rolls Royce engines was certified three years later.

The Tu-204-300, formerly known as the Tu-234, is a medium to long-range derivative of Tu-204-100 powered by two PS-90A turbofan engines. It features an improved flight range, comfort cabin for longer endurance flights, shortened fuselage with the seating capacity and payload cut down. In addition, the Tu-204-300 operates from longer runways than its predecessors. It is capable of covering 5,800 km routes carrying 164 passengers; 7500 km routes with 13.5 tons payload; or up to 8,500 km carrying 142 passengers. The flight crew is three persons - a two-member crew version is scheduled - plus five to eight flight attendants. The Tu-204-300 performed its maiden flight on August 18, 2003.

So far, the Tu-204-300 has been sold to Vladivostok Air which became its launch customer. The Tu-204-300 was awarded the type certification by Russian Authorities on September 6, 2005. The first aircraft entered revenue service with Vladivostok Air in late September 2005.
