Uzbeks Market Planes

TASHKENT, Uzbekistan -- Uzbekistan plans to set up an aircraft leasing company, which it hopes will boost sales of planes produced at its aircraft factory in the capital, Tashkent, Vadim Kucherov, director general of the factory, said Monday.

The factory produces Ilyushin-76 four-engine turbo-jet transport planes with a cargo capacity of 50 metric tons. It has recently started assembling new Ilyushin-114 turbo-prop 64-seat two-engine passenger planes.

"Offers of Ilyushin-76 and Ilyushin-114 on condition of financial leasing and with 30 to 45 percent of their price paid in advance must substantially increase sales of the planes produced at our enterprise," Kucherov said.
