OTTAWA, (Reuters) – Russia may allow third-party companies to maintain passenger planes in a bid for domestic carriers that have been hit hard by sanctions following the invasion of Ukraine.

Tass stated that the draft bill was being prepared by Russia’s transport ministry to aid airlines up until September 2022. According to the Russian news agency, it would suspend any scheduled and unscheduled inspections on carriers.

Boeing (NYSE.) Co and Airbus SE, (OTC.:) – two of the largest manufacturers of aircraft components in the world – have suspended supply to Russian airlines. It will be more difficult to maintain the planes.

Tass explained that the bill will allow for “the repair or replacement of aircraft components” by third parties, so long as the companies involved in maintenance meet their requirements. The bill did not provide details.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said earlier this Saturday that Moscow had been in negotiations with airlines leasing companies about potential problems related to the sanctions.

Russia’s aviation authorities recommend that all domestic carriers with foreign-leased aircraft cease passenger and cargo travels to and from Russia, starting March 6. They also suggest that they suspend flights from Russia and foreign countries to Russia, beginning on March 8. This will prevent any possible seizing of their planes.
