Purchase of “Antonov” Aircraft for the National Airline of Ukraine

The Ministry of Infrastructure plans to cooperate with the state aviation concern in the first half of 2022

According to Ukroboronprom, Ukrainian National Airlines will be replenished with five new AN-158s.

“For Ukrainian National Airlines, the sole owner of which is the state, different classes of aircraft are needed. For regional and medium-haul transportation, we consider the An-158, which is ideal for flights within Ukraine,'' minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Oleksandr Kubrakov.

“We expect that the contracts will be signed directly between Antonov state enterprise and Ukrainian National Airlines. AN-158 is an excellent aircraft with 99 seats. Over the next 3 years, we are ready to build five such aircraft by order of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the national air carrier. At the same time, the first aircraft - within the first year,” general director of Ukroboronprom Yurii Husev.
