Jahangir Asgarov expressed his concern regarding Boeing's potential decision to stop the production of Boeing 747-8F aircraft. In particular, there will be a need to purchase 20 Boeing 747-8F aircrafts for Azerbaijani civil aviation within the next 10 years. Therefore, Asgarov intends to make a request to Boeing Corporation to continue the production of this type of aircraft.
