Russia and Egypt are going to sign a memorandum for the delivery of four SSJ100 passenger planes to Egypt.
According to Russian Trade Minister Denis Manturo, the deal includes an option for the purchase of six additional aircraft.
“We believe that tomorrow colleagues must sign a memorandum with one of Egypt’s air tourism companies. They will sign a memorandum on supplying Egypt with four Sukhoi Superjet aircraft… to transport tourists within the region, particularly Egypt itself,” Manturov told reporters.
The Superjet 100 is a Russian-made twin-engine regional passenger airliner. It completed its maiden flight in 2008 and was sold commercially for the first time in 2011.
