Putin Allows Russian Airlines To Steal Foreign Aircraft

This is major, but also shouldn’t come as much of a surprise…

Putin’s new law lets airlines register foreign planes in Russia

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has led to all kinds of sanctions from the international community. As it impacts the aviation industry, we’ve seen the following:

With the challenges that Russian aviation is facing, Vladimir Putin has today signed a law that essentially legalizes Russian airlines stealing planes. With this new law, Russian airlines are allowed to place airplanes leased from foreign companies on Russia’s aircraft registry.

With well over 500 jets in Russia being leased from foreign companies, this formally allows Russian airlines to continue to operate these planes. As it’s described, this new law is intended as a measure “to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of activities in the field of civil aviation.”

With these planes now allowed to be registered in Russia (according to Putin), they’ll be able to get domestic airworthiness certificates. Admittedly airlines will be limited in where they can fly these planes, so you can expect that these re-registered planes will only operate within Russia.

Many Aeroflot planes will be re-registered in Russia

Why this development is actually significant

On the surface this development is significant but not — it’s absolutely nuts that Russian airlines are trying to prevent planes from being repossessed, though it’s not terribly surprising, given everything that’s going on.

Up until now there have been questions about how long the current situation would last. Are we talking days, weeks, months, years, or decades? With this move from Putin, we’re more or less assured that the impacts on aviation will be long-lasting.

Aircraft can only be registered in one country at a time, so I think it’s safe to say that with Russia trying to register these aircraft in a different country without the permission of the owners, the current operators of these planes will never be allowed to fly these planes internationally again (well, perhaps aside from flights to Belarus, etc.).

This is a major no-no, and will have consequences. Russia’s decision here means that Russian airlines will face issues even after the current situation is over. Then again, in the grand scheme of what’s going on right now, it’s hardly the most significant development.

This will have a lasting impact for Russian airlines

Bottom line

Putin has signed a law allowing Russian airlines to re-register foreign aircraft in Russia. Yep, that’s despite the fact that these planes are generally owned by foreign leasing companies, and they’re supposed to be seized. This is an unprecedented situation for commercial aviation, but then again, these are unusual and scary times.

What do you make of this new law from Putin?

    So these aircraft owners should file suit against Russian federation as this is tantamount to conversion or civil theft! Obtain a judgement and move to collect judgement tapping into their frozen assets.

  2. Dante LaBeaux Guest

    When I first saw the headline I busted out laughing. Putin has become a caricature of everything evil and wrong in this world. He can do whatever he wants until some Russian whacks him and takes over. That's the only way this ends well.

  3. Hating Putin Loving Russians Guest

    Reimburse the leasing companies by seizing Russian money in Western banks. If Putin wants to take the planes let him pay for them.

  4. Jed Guest

    What lender in their right mind would ever finance another Russian airplane….

      Real and Fake parts will be made and or smuggled from China.

  6. Don Guest

    Don’t sell them parts to fix them.They can fly em til they crash.

  7. D Lloyd Guest

    Where will the spare parts come from

    1. Andrew Guest

      There are many airlines and distributors from friendly jurisdictions that will sell, in many cases they can do that from a third party, and in many cases they dont even know that it will be ship to Russia, Oman, Turkey, UAE, etc.
      In other cases Russian airlines can use domestic and Chinese aircraft to replace in the future the existing fleet and they can also buy second hand Airbus and Boeing.

    SO good to see here that Russian Bots and TRUMP TRAITOR supporters are quickly pounced on. TRAITOR TRUMP SUPPORTERS, your time is finished! YOU BETRAYED YOUR country by supporting a traitor who betrayed our country and bowing to PUTIN like a dog. Never forget what he did in Helsinki.

    I cannot believe this is the same people that travel business and first class and lack the proper language and educated manners.
    We need more diplomacy and understand the position of each part.
    Most of the leasing contracts are with AerCap from Dublin with 152 aircraft close to $2.4 billion. We must remember that its the lessors who are terminating the contract before its due, not the Russian airlines, so this can be a very long legal battle and usually under normal conditions.
    The russian airlines can continue pay in rubles even if its far from ideal, but its money at the end of the day, the complication here are the sanctions and the frozen of close to $300 billion of Russian assets and foreign reserves by US, Germany & UK.
    So this action prevents the affected parts involved to solve the problem.
    Conclusion: Make a negotiation for the sake of your business.
    Im pretty sure that the leasing contracts with the UAE will be pay and will be honor.
    Remember, Sanctions have no basis in international law, they are disruptive and they undermine international rules and harm all nations and people.

    1. Grown Up Disney Family Guest

      I am puzzled by your statement that sanctions are disruptive when I compare it to the 'disruption' the country in question has committed in an independent nation. Are you suggesting I should be sympathetic to the 'plight' of these airlines?

  12. Odd Guest

    Well once the wars over, keep the ban in place unless they pay 3-5 times what's owed on each and every aircraft they got, do not sell them parts , let them rot, the insurance companies will be going nuts but hey ho thats what insurance is for.

  13. Cmorgan Guest

    Looks like “no trumptrads traitors “ and other libs simply can’t get over the fact that Trump WAS the president and Biden is NOW the president. You can deflect blame all u want but we all know who is the White House. I certainly do and am reminded about it every time I pay $5.00 gallon for gas, read about another illegal who just arrived and who has already committed a crime, shop at the grocery store where half of the shelves are bare and …… so on.

      @Andrew, hey Russian bot Andrew! Go back to Putin and polish his boots, because that is all he will have left. Tell Putin that his minion is not there, and real Americans are willing to pay whatever for their gas because they love their country and democracy, and the Traitor Trump is gone! And the Russian economy is finished.

  14. Kevin Liddell Guest

    What is also of concern is how the leasing companies are going to survive not to mention the loss of jobs/redundancies in those companies. Putins actions are grand theft on a huge scale

  15. Miss Know Mer Guest

    Sort of no different than US Corporations filing bankruptcy here, reneging on leases and debt to reorganize and “steal” from investors and creditors. No?

    A legal form of theft allowing others to reorganize instead of liquidating and sticking it to creditors pennies on the dollar.

  16. ME Guest

    Well lesson learned, the question is what will Russia do in 5-6 years when they need to replace aircraft. Good luck

      Sure they are. All they have to do is mail in a ballot. Many states won't even check the return address, let alone require an ID. Or just give to friends (Russian mobsters operating in the US?) and they can drop them in unattended ballot boxes.

    4. CMorgan Guest

      Specifically isn’t it funny that Putin waited until Trump was out of office to invade. That in itself speaks volumes. Open your eyes and look around. Unfortunately Your 1 term POTUS has two more years left. God help us all.

    5. Jasper Guest

      Of course he waited until Trump was out of office, he didn't want to make his puppet look bad. He waited until he no longer had a puppet in the White House.

  18. Frank Guest

    This is a lesson to be learned for aircraft leasing companies. From now on they should consider installing a device or software program in every leased aircraft that can be used to remotely lock a key operating feature of an aircraft, that makes it unusable.

    1. Al Guest

      Do we know that they have not?

  19. RetiredATLATC Guest

    Good luck trying to get parts when these aircraft break down.

      the mark of a great site host!

  20. shoeguy Guest

    Bad for the lessors, but Russian airlines likely faces bans everywhere, and even if things were to settle down, it will take a long time before these planes will be cleared to land at most airports outside of Russia as their airworthiness, certifications, etc...and likely revoked, invalid, or out of date, making them now a hazard.

  21. Captain Ayud Guest

    Not sure the carriers, reading the tea leaves, will actually listen and register the planes in RU knowing they can never leave the country again.
    They may not return the planes or pay leases but nationalizing them is a line once crossed, makes Russian carriers pariahs forever, end of their airline industry.

    1. K Moore Guest

      Not to mention violating the Chiago Convention of 1944 rules about registration and ignori g the Capetown treaty. Leasing companies will be very hesitantto place assets with Russian carriers for many many years!

  22. Eskimo Guest

    After carefully reading, I can't see how this law is stealing?

    If you mean operating a leased aircraft without consent, then regardless of registration or not, it already was stolen.

    Just having a new registration on an already stolen plane doesn't make this new policy about stealing planes.

    This law doesn't mean anything unless I'm missing some ICAO rule that Russia is trying to be compliant.

    1. John Guest

      "After careful reading...."

      When you start a sentence like that, I knew you were about to tell a really, really, really big whopper!

    Imagine if the orange traitor Trump had been in power. Putin would have invaded the whole Europe, with impunity. He withdraw troops from Germany and undermined the NATO. He was doing Putin's bidding the whole time, and Putin thought that the NATO was weak, and he invaded. Now the orange traitor is plotting to turn the US into a totalitarianism.

What really scares me is that Kamala Harris is one breath away from being the President.
      Trump made peace deals left and right in the Middle East and even pacified the Korean Peninsula.
      NATO has been useless since WW2 and still useless. Those random Central European nations all owe the US money . President Trump had every right to try and end NATO.

      The World (with the exception of about five or so dodgy countries with even more dodgier governments) did not 'steal' 650B from Russia. It was an 'economic special operation'. Oh, and the amount is not 650B. It was 'only' about half that...the balance was in Russia. I hope Ukraine gets most of it.

    If they fly these planes to ANY Western country, they'll be impounded immediately. If they keep them domestically (which is a longshot), most will rot from lack of use. Also, the global supply chain for both Airbus and Boeing planes has been shut off for Russia. Where's he gonna get spare parts? It'll be the Ayatollah's Iran all over again.

    Russia has decoupled itself from the west for decades at least. China is trying to figure out how to invade Taiwan and not face the same fate.

    All because a couple people can't tolerate others thinking and acting as they want.

    Aviation, as always, is a microcosm of the world. The world at its worst is separated and aviation will play that role just as faithfully as it plays its role of bringing the best of the world together.

      Exactly, about half of their nearly $650 billion in forex/gold is held internationally. Repay the companies whose assets were ¨nationalized¨ and use the rest to rebuild Ukraine.

      Maybe rebuild Ukraine first?

    3. Dick Bupkiss Guest

      Ukraine is keeping careful track of the value of things Russia has destroyed. They're expecting to rebuild using all that Russian money, and I say bravo. Ukraine should take it all, they're going to need it.

      Russia will be the poorest country in the world after this plays out. Any Russian citizen with half a brain is heading for the exits, if they have not already left yet. Living in Russia is going to be just like living in North Korea.

    1. Mike Saint Guest

      Putin has always been a THUG. I agree, we should just take Russia's foreign reserves and gold stored outside of Russia and just use it to reimburse Ukraine. We should be using Russia's money to compensate Ukraine for all the damage and destruction.

      I don't feel sorry for any of the oil companies that will lose billions of dollars. Maybe they will learn a lesson not to get in bed with murderous THUGS.

      After these actions, NO ONE should ever feel comfortable investing in any country that has a murderous dictator in charge of their country. Putin made a serious mistake. It's one thing to grow up in Russia without Western influences. But it's another to have the youth grow up basically living like the West. Give this several months or a year and you will see a very different reaction by the typical Russian.

    2. Nosa Guest

      I don’t think so. Sanctions on Russian billionaires won’t necessarily made them hate Putin. Yes their money were seized because they are Russian, but they also know they got those money because they are Russian. Clever people never speak loud, but Ukraine is sacrificed.

    3. Bobo Bolinski Guest

      No, BRAVE people speak out. Russian apologists, and the useful idiot boot-lickers working for Putin say just keep quiet and count your winnings.

      It's good versus evil, pick a side. We all can see which side you're on, Ivan, fascist scum.
