Export variant of the Tu-204 medium range airliner with British engines. Flown first time on 14 August 1992. Series production since 1997.


Lufthansa has expressed interest in acquiring one or more Tupolev Tu-204-120 aircraft, according to Tupolev chief designer Lev Lanovsky. During an interview with Russian press agency Itar-Tass, Mr. Lanovsky says the German airline's interest in the Russian aircraft is justified by its lower cost while being fitted with Rolls Royce engines and AlliedSignal and Honeywell equipment. Other advantages of the Tu-204 include the high quality of the materials and the high standard of assembly, according to Mr. Lanovsky. The Tu-204-120 has a maximum capacity of 212 passengers, a 4,500 Km (2,810 miles) range and costs USD 37 millions, whereas equivalent Western aircraft such as the Airbus A310 or the Boeing 757 cost from 50 to 100% more.
