Ukraine will not allow the use of passenger aircraft older than 20 years,

Ukraine will not allow the use of passenger aircraft older than 20 years, Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelian told reporters in Kyiv on Tuesday. He said some planes now used in Ukraine, largely by charter airlines, are as old as 40 years. Referring to a popular policewoman TV show, he told tour operators he is thinking of hiring an “Inspector Freimut” to check aircraft cabins for cleanliness and good repair. Addressing airline owners, he urged them to renew domestic fleets with Antonov AN-158, the 99-seat single class regional jet suited for the 2-hour flights common in Ukraine. Separately, Antonov is working with Saudi authorities to produce the An-132 at facilities in Taif
