The development of a new twin-engine passenger aircraft An-24, intended for operation on local airlines, began at GSOKB-473 named after O.K. Antonov in 1958 in accordance with the Decree of the Council of Ministers of the USSR No. 1417-656 of December 18, 1957. According to the assignment, the aircraft was supposed to carry passengers with an equivalent load of 4000 kg for a distance of up to 2600 km with a cruising speed of 450 km/h. The use of AI-24 engines was envisaged.

The first flight of the An-24 was made on October 20, 1959, at the helm was the crew of test pilot G. I. Lysenko. In 1961, factory and state tests were carried out. Serial production of the aircraft began in early 1962 at plant number 473 in Kyiv. In September 1962, the first technical flight with passengers took place. On October 31, 1962, the operation of the aircraft began on the Kyiv-Kherson route.

The average estimated technical resource for one machine at the stage of putting the aircraft into operation was estimated by O.K. Antonov at 30 thousand flight hours, accordingly, the life of the aircraft in peacetime conditions was estimated by him at 10-15 years of operation.

In Soviet times, the An-24 was one of the most popular aircraft and provided a third of the passenger traffic in the country. The reason for the high demand for the liner was its ability to land on small unprepared airfields and soil.

Aircraft production continued until 1979. From 1962 to 1979, more than 1200 aircraft were produced, of which 1028 were produced by the Kyiv Aviation Plant "Aviant". The An-24 was also produced in China under the name Xian Y-7.
