Twin Otter aircraft producer De Havilland Canada (DHC) will build an aircraft factory in Indonesia in cooperation with state aircraft maker PT Dirgantara Indonesia.

Indonesia is favored on market point of view over other countries in this region to be the production base for Twin Otter aircraft, air transport director general said.

Dirgantara Indonesia, which has a factory producing turboprop aircraft and helicopters in Bandung, West Java, however, could not give details of the plan.

The capacity of the factory and the cost of the project to be built in Bandung, have yet to be decided.

Dirgantara president Budi Santoso said Indonesia needs at least 60 units of Twin Otter aircraft to serve routes to isolated areas in the country.

The 60 units include replacement for 20 units of old Twin Otter planes now in operation in the country.
