Kyrgyzstan has the only aircraft made in USSR — executive one. Head of the Department for Civil Aviation Activity Development and Legal Support of the Civil Aviation Agency Alymbai Abakirov told at a press conference today.
According to him, the aircraft, which is used by the president, was made in the Soviet Union. All other airlines switched to the use of foreign aircrafts.
«A new plane will cost $ 80-100 million. Neither the state nor the private companies have such money. Kyrgyzstan uses second-hand airplanes,» said Alymbai Abakirov.
