Russia Considers Setting Up Maintenance Center For MC-21 Aircraft In Uzbekistan

Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Rogozin said Russia is considering setting up a MC-21 Aircraft Maintenance Center in Uzbekistan.

"We also wanted to talk about the MC-21. Let’s assume that Uzbekistan is actively participating in this program, and we are talking about the possibility of using this ultra-modern aircraft by the Uzbek airlines, then we could create a spare parts warehouse for the entire region on the basis of this plant," he said when visiting the Tashkent Mechanical Plant, TASS reports.

Rogozin stressed that Russia is interested not only in selling aircraft, but also in its maintenance.

MC-21 is a new Russian short-and medium-range passenger jet. First deliveries of the aircraft are scheduled to the fourth quarter of 2018.
