Russian Helicopters to Strengthen Position in Asia-Pacific Market
Russian Helicopters is ready to provide Indonesia and other Asia-Pacific nations with new helicopters for their aircraft fleets. According to the estimates, the demand for medium and medium-heavy civil helicopters will exceed 50 units over the next 10 years.
“We have a strong position in the Asia-Pacific market, and we intend to strengthen it in the future. Russian-made helicopters constitute 22% of Asian-Pacific countries’ combat helicopter fleets,” Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev stated.
It should be noted that the ways of strengthening and expanding trade between Russia and Indonesia, including prospects for the deliveries of Russian-made helicopters, were discussed during Russian Trade and Industry Minister Denis Manturov’s visit to Indonesia. Indonesia is still one of the key Asian-Pacific markets for the Russian helicopter manufacturer, with more than 10 helicopters delivered to this country over 2010-2013.
