ASTANA, February 22 (Itar-Tass) — Kazakhstan’s aircraft repair plant in Aktobe, formerly known as Aktyubinsk, will provide services for aircraft from Central Asia and Afghanistan, the republic’s Deputy Defence Minister Talgat Zhanzhumenov, told a parliamentary session on Wednesday.
The plant will be used for this purpose “at Russia’s request,” he said.
The plant “gained a strong foothold in the area of aircraft maintenance and repair not only in our country, but also on the post-Soviet space,” Zhanzhumenov said. “It successfully repairs all planes of Yak-family, An-2 light multipurpose aircraft and jet engines.”
By repairing aircraft from Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Afghanistan the plant will be able “to tap its potential in full,” the deputy defence minister said.
