Antonov's turboprop aircrafts are very popular in Africa and Asia countries where the most of their territory is desert. Modern turbojet aircrafts could not work well because sand in the air can damage the internal part of the turbine thereby increasing the cost of engine repairs. Turboprop aircrafts of Antonov Factory can work well with sand in the air and also can make takeoffs and landings from unprepared runways.
