The Antonov An-50 was a planned Soviet airliner with four turbojets. It was planned by Antonov in the first part of the 1970s. The aircraft was never built.

Antonov made the plans based on the An-24R but it would have four turbojets with 14.7 kN thrust each one instead of the two turbojets used earlier. Turbojets were planned to be built together with the undercarriages, under the half-wings. There was no other major changes planned. Plans were ready in 1972, but nothing had been built. There was no prototype as well.

It was planned to weigh 24600 kg at boarding, it would have a 490 km/h speed at 9400 m altitude.
