UTair-Leasing has signed an international lease contract for delivery of 50 units of airfield technical equipment for exploitation at the Dushanbe International Airport in Tajikistan. The deal is valued at more than €5.9 mln.
The contract includes the acquisition and delivery of advanced self-propelled passenger stairs, pushback tugs, belt loaders and ramp busses. The delivery is planned to be completed in March 2014.
The acquisition of new technical equipment for aircraft MRO, ramp and runway maintenance will allow Dushanbe Airport to increase the quality of passenger service and will support uninterrupted airport operations in all weather conditions.
“The normative leasing scenario in Russia presumes delivery by a foreign leasing company to a Russian lessee. In this case, the UTair Leasing contract with the Dushanbe Airport represents a strategic partnership with potential for expanded future cooperation,” said Acting UTair-Leasing CEO Maria Schwarz. “UTair-Leasing already has broad experience of leasing technical assets for passenger service and aircraft MRO and will continue developing this direction of activities.”
