Dozens of Russian planes seized over sanctions

In total, there are 780 leased aircraft in Russia, 515 of which come from foreign companies. Fearing that those companies will claim the planes if they land outside Russia, the country has called on airlines to stop flying leased aircraft outside Russia and Belarus.

These aircraft were also often registered abroad. For example, almost all Boeing and Airbus aircraft used by Russian airlines were registered in Bermuda and Ireland. Last week, those two countries suspended certification of all aircraft operated by Russia. Russia then made it possible for foreign parties to register aircraft in Russia.

The country had 1,367 aircraft when the sanctions were imposed. Of these, almost eight hundred are now registered in the Russian aircraft register.

Russia says it wants to resolve the dispute with the leasing companies. However, the lessors of the planes do not want to negotiate compensation or a sale, the Russians said.
