During the international exhibition EKSPORIAL, an agreement was reached on cooperation between the Government of the Nizhny Novgorod region and Swiss business aviation operator, RUAG Aviation.
The Swiss company will take part in the development of the regional aviation cluster.
"We discussed the possibility of the development of capacities of
RUAG Aviation at our aviation industrial park, because there is a need in the region to produce aircraft for inter-regional transportation, with the capacity of 20-40 seats," Nizhny Novgorod Governor Valery Shantsev said.
Vice-President of RUAG Aviation, Alexander von Erdmansdorf, said that the governor could see a model of Dornier 228 aircraft, which can be used for inter-regional transportation of passengers and cargo.
"We are very pleased that the delegation of the Nizhny Novgorod region, headed by the Governor, visited our factory of RUAG Aviation. I was particularly pleased to personally tell the Governor about our production, as it turned out that he knows a lot about aircraft. I hope that we will continue to work in the future," he said.
