Ilyushin Aviation Complex (part of the United Aircraft Corporation) is ready to start serial production of Il-114-300 aircraft as soon as possible, which will replace the fleet of imported planes used by Russian air carriers for inter-regional flights, reported by Ilyushin press service.

"We understand that the regional aviation market is very promising, and in view of the current political situation, Russian airlines should think about changing the fleet to domestic aircraft. We have something to offer in this case. In case of receipt of the relevant order, we are ready in a short time to establish a mass production of regional IL-114-300, which with new engines and a new cabin will be able to compete with the aircrafts of the largest Western manufacturers, "said CEO of Ilyushin Alexei Rogozin.

He noted that the company hopes for large orders from Russian air carriers. "We expect after 2021 to produce about 12 aircraft per year," Rogozin specified.
