BEIJING: Chinese state media say a domestic manufacturer will sell three regional aircraft to a Ukraine-based airline.
The official Xinhua New Agency reported Saturday that Xi'an Aircraft International Corp. had inked a deal to sell three twin-turboprop MA60 aircraft to Kiev-based MARS. It did not disclose the value of the deal.
Xinhua says this is the first time for China-made civil regional aircraft to enter the European market.
XAIC, a subsidiary of state-owned China Aviation Industry Corporation, calls the deal with the Ukrainian airline a "breakthrough" on its official website.
