Antonov Logistics SALIS has been awarded a five-year contract with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)’s Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) to continue working on its Strategic Airlift International Solution (SALIS) programme.

Ukraine and NATO have been cooperating under the SALIS programme since January 2006, during which time Antonov has provided strategic airlift for NATO and the the European Union (EU).

Under the programme, Antonov ensures two AN-124-100s are available around the clock for SALIS, with additional AN-124-100 planes available on request.

Since 2006, contract extensions for Antonov’s SALIS work have been made for two or three year periods.
