Pobeda, part of the Aeroflot Group, plans to purchase 30 new B737 MAX 8, as the Russian carrier is seeking legal consultants for the procurement of the new aircraft.

Pobeda is also interested in rights to convert some of the new Boeing aircraft to the MAX 10 or MAX 200 model. Sale and leaseback transactions are also being considered, according to the documents.

The contract is valued at US$6 million.
