Boeing is stepping in to restart Antonov’s serial production of regional jets and military transports.

Boeing is stepping in to restart Antonov’s serial production of regional jets and military transports. Boeing’s Aviall parts subsidiary is to build outside of Kyiv city a major warehouse costing “tens of millions of dollars” to provide the needed flow of Western parts to fully replace Russian parts, Antonov’s chief, Oleksandr Donets, tells Reuters. With this new warehouse at Gostomel Airport, Antonov’s base, Antonov will produce two or three planes next year, and then ramp up to six planes a year in 2020, Donets says. Based in Dallas, Aviall will source parts from the US, Canada, Israel, Europe, and Ukraine.
