That is, the total need is estimated at approximately 800 aircraft.

According to Vladimir Serov, the data cited is based on marketing research and expert estimates of the Italian Alenia firm, the annual Janes` and one English company. At the same time it is a question of the potential demand only for a specific type of airplane - the Be-200.

Be-200 airplanes are built at the Irkutsk aviation plane, which is executing the first order for the delivery of seven airplanes of this type for the Russian Federation Ministry of Emergency Situations with a total cost of the state contract on the order of four billion rubles.
