Boeing and Russia’s privately owned East Line signed an agreement to establish Russia Technique at Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport for maintenance of non-Russian-made airplanes. East Line plans to invest between $40- and $45 million in the project over the next 30 months. The facility will start work on Boeing 737s in about seven months, according to Boeing. In the future it will provide support for the Russian Regional Jet (RRJ), a joint effort of Sukhoi, Ilyushin and Boeing. An RRJ launch decision is expected next month or in July.
