Description: The Antonov An-140 is a twin-turboprop, cargo/passenger aircraft intended to replace the An-24/26/30/32 family of transport aircraft which was introduced in the 1960s. This airplane entered into revenue service in 2002 with airlines on regional routes. An-140 design focus on operability in a wide range of airports and unpaved airfields at day and night. Airlines of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and countries influenced by the former Soviet Union will use the An-140 for its fleet renewal.

The An-140 is powered by two wing-mounted TB3-117VMA-SBM1 turboprop engines rated at 2,500 shaft horsepower. Carrying maximum payload of up to 6 tons and cruising at 540 kilometer per hour this aircraft has a range of 1,380 km. With up to 52 passengers the range extends to 2,420 km and with maximum fuel load and 43 passengers the An-140 can conduct a 3,000 km non-stop flight. Take off and landing operations can be performed on paved/unpaved runaways of up to 1,500 meters.

This passenger aircraft features seating capacity for up to 52 passengers but Antonov might develop a further model with an extended fuselage accommodating 68 passengers. The passengers enjoy of a high level of comfort inside the An-140. A cargo door at the right hand-side of the fuselage has been provided for loading/unloading operations. The landing gear is for cross country capable with low pressure tires for operation at unprepared airfields. The An-140 also focus on operation in extreme climate from cold/icing to desert conditions.

The An-140-100 model is a further development of the An-140 featuring increased span. There were set production lines at the Kharkov State Aircraft Production Plant in Ukraine; HESA plant in Isfahan, Iran; and the AVIACOR IAC, DISC in Samara, Russian Federation. As of 2004, more than 5 An-140s have been delivered to airlines. Antonov plans to develop further variants to perform as ambulance, VIP transport, geological survey, freighter, ice patrol and fishing exploration, aerial photography and patrol aircraft. In September 2006 Yakutia Airlines became the first Russian carrier operating the An-140-100 airliner.
