"Antonov" for the first time in four years sold the plane


His plane won at Airbus

The state enterprise Antonov Plant, which is part of Ukroboronprom, will sell the aircraft for the first time in four years. Will deliver an average transport An-178 for the Peruvian National Police. SpecTechnoExport signed a contract from the Ukrainian side, the press service of Ukroboronprom reports. According to SpetsTekhnoExport, thanks to the signing of the contract, Ukraine opens up the Latin American market for the new generation of Antonov cargo planes.

At the moment, negotiations are underway with potential customers of Ukrainian aircraft from other countries in this region.

The plant's products were ahead of competitors such as Leonardo's C27J aircraft (USA-Italy) and Airbus's CASA C-295. To determine the final assessment, the customer took into account delivery times, aircraft performance, staff training, extended warranties, and more.

Antonovs airplanes have long proved their operational efficiency worldwide, along with this, our designers offer new solutions and new equipment in response to the challenges of our time. This contract was a logical continuation of the operation of the ANs in Peru, because the new An-178 will replace the An-32B in the service of the police, said Aivaras Abromavicius, Director General of Ukroboronprom.

Note that before this, the last sold Antonov aircraft was the An-158, delivered to the customer in 2015.
