The Union of Aircraft Manufacturers of Russia (UAMR) has responded to western sanctions, arguing the number of foreign aircraft in Russia should be reduced.

The UAMR flight safety committee says Russia should limit the share of foreign-made aircraft operating domestically to avoid the risks associated with sanctions, reports local newspaper Izvestia.

The union says foreign manufacturers and authorities are limiting the supply of spare parts as well as restricting access to flight simulators and technical documentation.

Smart Aviation Asia Pacific previously reported that far eastern Russia’s Kamchatka Airlines had to cease operations due to a lack of western aircraft.
