Ilyushin Finance has secured an order from the Myanmar government for two Antonov An-148 regional jets that will be used for passenger and VIP transport.

The South-East Asian country is also in discussion to buy the smaller An-140 twin-engined turboprop, as is its neighbour Laos.

"This year's delivery slots for the An-148 are full," says Antonov, which adds that the An-148s will be delivered "no later than 2011".

The Ukrainian airframer confirms that talks are also under way with the Laos government for the sale of around three An-140s, but a deal has yet to be concluded.

Laos took delivery of a VIP-configured An-74TK-300D regional jet in October 2009, says Antonov, adding that Egypt and Libya are among its governmental customers for the An-74.
