Egypt takes one more An-74T-200A twinjet


Ukraine’s Kharkov State Aircraft Manufacturing Company (KSAMC) has delivered third An-74T-200A multirole transport aircraft to the Egyptian air force.

The contract signed in 2003 called for delivery of three aircraft following an international tender ran by the Egyptian defense ministry. The order was three firms and six options. The first aircraft delivered to the customer in 2005, second in 2009.

KSAMC is negotiating with the Egyptian customer on firming up the option. The manufacturer hopes it may receive follow on orders for 18 more An-74 family aircraft.

Meantime, Ukraine and Egypt are negotiating on setting up a maintenance center in the Egyptian territory to support Antonov aircraft in service with Egypt and neighboring countries. It may open in 2011.
