NEW DELHI, March 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s Irkut Aviation Construction Corporation plans to sell by 2025-2030 to India from 100 to 200 of MS-21 planes, which are being designed now, the corporation’s Vice President Kirill Budayev told reporters on Thursday.
We can see potential in the Indian aviation market due to growth of passenger flow, he said. The Indian market is strategic for us, and we could sell here 100-200 MS_21 by 2025-2030.
The corporation is negotiating with Indian carriers now, and one of orders may be due next year already, he continued. Irkut plans opening a sales office in India.
The first flight of the liner is planned for 2014, and its certification and supplies are due in 2017, Budayev said.
This year, Irkut is participating in the India Aviation for the first time. The corporation presented a cabin and salon of MS-21.
The salon, which presents over 20 planes, including Russia’s Sukhoi Superjet 100, will be working through to March 18.
MS-21 is a series of three twin-engine short-range and mid-range Russian jet airliners with a capacity of 150-212 passengers.
