The De Havilland Advantage

The Dash 8-400 series aircraft are renowned for exceptional performance and versatility, making them the ideal choice for Manas International Airport.


One standout feature is the customizability of these aircraft. Manas International Airport plans to outfit them with drop-down oxygen systems, ensuring the safety and comfort of up to 80 passengers on board.

Moreover, these aircraft come with the added advantage of De Havilland Canada’s comprehensive customer support program.

This program is designed to ensure the long-term operational efficiency of the aircraft in the airport’s fleet.

With De Havilland’s support, Manas International Airport can rest assured that its investment will continue to yield dividends for years to come.

Strengthening Domestic Market

Manas International Airport’s decision to partner with De Havilland Canada not only enhances its operational capabilities but also contributes to the growth of Kyrgyzstan’s domestic market.

By expanding its fleet with world-class aircraft, the airport is better positioned to serve its customers and foster economic development within the nation.

De Havilland Canada, a name synonymous with excellence in aircraft manufacturing, is equally excited about this partnership.

The company is dedicated to supporting Manas International Airport in achieving its goals and ensuring its continued success.
