Yak-42 made its first trial flight on March 7, 1975. Aeroflot put Yak-42s into service in 1980, and since 1981 this airplanes began their flights on international routes.
Yak-42 was the first Russian aircraft that have undergone the complete international certification and was allowed to fly without any restriction in all European countries.
