China’s Xi’an Aircraft Industry Company sells aircraft to Angola

22 January 2018

China’s Xi’an Aircraft Industry Company has sold two MA-60 aircraft to Angola, the subsidiary of the state-owned Aviation Industry Corporation of China said in a statement on Saturday.

The statement quotes Deputy Director-General Zhang Xiaohong as saying that the sale of the two aircraft to Angola represents yet another successful sale abroad, but gives no further details of the deal.

“The MA-60 aircraft will allow travel time of passengers in Angola to be reduced,” Zhang said, adding that this sale will increase the company’s popularity in the international market.

MA-60s are short-to-medium-range turbo-prop aircraft certified by the China Civil Aviation Administration in June 2000 and which due to low operating and maintenance costs are popular in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. (macauhub)
