Manas International Airport, situated near the Kyrgyzstan capital city of Bishkek, has purchased two De Havilland Canada Dash 8-400 series aircraft, with plans to integrate the new aircraft into its fleet in May 2024.

The Dash 8-400 series aircraft will be the first aircraft in the Kyrgyzstan startup’s fleet and will act as the foundation for future growth and expansion.

In addition to providing Manas International Airport with De Havilland Canada’s customer support programme, the aircraft will be customised with drop-down oxygen and a cabin configuration seating 80 passengers comfortably.
