Aeroflot's requirement for a short/ medium-range airliner to replace the llyushin IL-14 led to the design of what was basically a reduced-scale version of the Tu-104. The prototype Tupolev Tu-124 was first flown in June 1960, five years after the Tu-104, and introduced aerodynamic and system refinements, plus newly developed and much more efficient turbofan engines. In fact, the Soloviev D-20P twin-spool turbofans installed in these aircraft were the first such engines to equip any of the world's short/medium-range .airliners. Tu-124 had seats for 44 passengers and entered service with Aeroflot on 2 October 1962, but the major production version was the 56-seat Tu-124V. Variants included the Tu-124K and Tu-124K2 with de luxe seating for 36 and 22 passengers respectively. About 100 were built, this number including three for CSA in Czechoslovakia and two for Interflug in East Germany, but Aeroflot has now retired its Tu-124s. A small number entered military service, and it is believed that some are still used for research and test purposes. The NATO reporting name is 'Cookpot'.
