Tu-214 airplanes are modern and efficient single-aisle twin-engine long-haul aircraft, offering high fuel efficiency and high levels of comfort.
Tu-214 passenger airplanes, as well as PS-90A engines, are certified by AR IAC and meet all international aircraft noise and emissions requirements.
The competitiveness, high flight and serviceability performance, and operating efficiency of the Tu-214 airplane is achieved through its:
? Streamlined aerodynamic design;
? High aerodynamic efficiency;
? Refined design of airframe, systems, and equipment;
? Modern integrated flight control and navigation equipment;
? Modern, efficient engines.

The Government of the Russian Federation adopted Resolution No. 307 to launch the production of Tu-204-200 (Tu-214) airplanes at the S. Gorbunov Kazan Aircraft Production Association.
February 3, 1996
Roll-out of the first test item of the Tu-214-200 (Tu-214) airplane at the S. Gorbunov Kazan Aircraft Production Association.
March 20, 1996
Initial test runs of a prototype of the Tu-214-200 (Tu-214) airplane are completed at the airfield of the S. Gorbunov Kazan Aircraft Production Association.
March 20, 1996
The first flight of the initially-engineered, development model of the Tu-214-200 (Tu-214) airplane is completed in Kazan, Russia. The airplane was piloted by a crew captained by test pilot Alexander Kosorev.
March 14, 1997
A supplement to Type Certificate No. 68-204/6 confirming the compliance of the Tu-214-200 (TU-214) airplane with NLGS-3 airworthiness specifications is issued.
December 29, 2000
The Aviation Register of the Interstate Aviation Committee issues a Type Certificate for the Tu-214 airplane confirming its compliance with AP-25 aviation regulations.
The Tu-214 enters commercial service. Dalavia Airlines is the first operator of the airplane.
The Tu-214 with MSN 64502 operated by Dalavia Airlines is demonstrated at the International Air Show in Le Bourget (France).
Currently, Tu-214 airplanes are in line operation by a number of operators, including Special Air Wing Russia, aviation units of the FSB of Russia, the Russian Defense Ministry, Transaero Airlines, etc. Programs for the design and production of different versions of the airplane for special applications are being implemented.
Tu-214 airplanes are equipped with powerful and efficient modern PS-90A engines.
The PS-90A is a turbofan engine with high bypass ratio, air and gas flow mixing, a common exhaust nozzle and thrust reverser.
A number of engineering concepts aimed at higher efficiency and weight superiority have been implemented in its design.
Thanks to the refined design of its engines, as well as the choice of noise-abating devices, Tu-214 airplanes with PS-90A engines meets all standards of ICAO Annex 16, Chapter 3 for aircraft noise, and the standards of ICAO Annex 16 (Vol. 2) for emissions.
