The division includes Il-Resource (Moscow), 123 ARZ (Staraya Russa), 20 ARZ (Pushkin), 308 ARZ (Ivanovo) and 325 ARZ (Taganrog).

"The unification of all enterprises under the aegis of the transport aviation division will increase the effectiveness of design, creation, modernization, overhaul and servicing of aircraft. The decision will consolidate orders and credit portfolios, optimize production capacities, sign new contracts, including export ones," Rogozin said.

The plan was announced in April 2017, when UAC stated that the new division will manage the development of the Ilyushin Il-76 heavy and Il-112 light military airlifters and medium and super-heavy transport aircraft.

"The development of transport aircraft is a priority strategic area for the United Aircraft Corporation," Corporation President Yuri Slyusar then said at a meeting on the future of Russian aircraft, which was held at the Aviastar-SP Plant.
