After-sale services are to be organized at major regional airports to promote effective and unrestricted use of Ilyushin aircraft in the Arctic and adjacent areas. The new light Il-112V  airlifter can operate in low temperatures and harsh climate. It is to become a universal carrier of various cargoes. Civilian option can be designed upon customer request.
