According to him, only 4 out of 14 Pesa rail buses operated by the Ukrainian railway are in working order so far. “Some of these trains are used on the Borispol express route. Therefore, it is important for us to prepare them qualitatively and in advance for the expected revival of passenger traffic, after the renewal of the volume of international air transportation, ”noted Ivan Yurik.

A preliminary agreement was reached within the framework of direct cooperation with Pesa on training Ukrainian train maintenance specialists in order to reduce the operating costs of the Ukrainian carrier and the localization of repairs in the future.
