Azerbaijan to buy 10 Ukrainian An-178 aircraft

The price of the contract has not been disclosed, but it has become known that the first advance payment has already been made by Azerbaijan’s company. The amount of prepayment has not been disclosed either, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to UNIAN.

The report says the negotiations have lasted for nearly a year.

The Antonov An-178 will be delivered to Azerbaijan in two shipments within two years: two aircraft to be delivered first, followed by another eight, which may be assembled in the territory of Azerbaijan.

The An-178 aircraft made its first flight last year. As of now, there have been 77 landings. Testing of the aircraft is underway. An-178 can transport up to 18 tonnes of various cargo. The aircraft accelerates to 850 kilometers per hour and flies at a cruising altitude of about 12 kilometers.

It should be recalled that Ukraine will supply first An-132 to Saudi Arabia in early 2017.
