KIEV, May 17 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukraine has held negotiations on selling planes of the An-148/158 and An-74 families to Sudan, the press-service of the state-run concern Antonov has said.
Sudan’s Transport Minister Feisal Abdullah visited two Ukrainian aircraft building plants this week. In part, he was taken to the final assembly shop of the Kiev-based serial plant Antonov, where three An-148 and one An-158 are in the final construction phase. Then he went to Kharkov, where at a local plant he saw the process of manufacturing multi-purpose planes of the An-74 family.
Abdullah believes all planes he was shown can be effectively operated by Sudan’s airlines. Further discussions should be held with the participation of technical specialists and airlines’ management.
“The just-ended visit may prove a starting point of cooperation between Ukraine and the republic of Sudan and the supplies of new aircraft,” the press-service said.
