JSC ILis ready to launch batch production of IL-114-300 aircraft at the earliest possible juncture. These aircraft will be able to replace imported aircraft used by Russian air carriers for interregional flights, a March 6 statement by Ilyshin said.
IL-114-300 is to replace imported aircraft of such type and outdated AN-24/AN-26. Unlike its foreign analogues, IL-114-300 can take off and land using unprepared airfields.
Currently, all the necessary documentation is being prepared to organise production of this aircraft in Russia, and as early as in 2020, the first production IL-114-300 aircraft is to make its flight in Lukhovitsy, Moscow region.

If there is a respective order, we are ready to launch batch production of regional IL-114-300 shortly.
