BANGALORE /India/, February 18. /TASS/. Russia’s Sukhoi Civil Aircraft manufacturer of Superjet 100 (SSJ-100) medium-haul airliners may start selling planes to Russian airlines in ruble equivalent already in 2015, Sukhoi Vice-President Yevgeny Andrachnikov said on the sidelines of the Aero India air show on Wednesday.
"Definitely," he said in reply to a question about whether deals would be struck in ruble equivalent during this year.
"This is an understandable desire of Russian airliners because they have their revenues in rubles. That is why, we’re working with each customer separately on the possibility of providing them funding in ruble equivalent. Not only our company but also financial institutions are working on this issue," he said.
The Superjet 100 project is a family of medium-range passenger aircraft developed by Russia's Sukhoi Civil Aircraft in cooperation with US and European aviation companies, including Boeing, Snecma, Thales, Messier Dowty, Liebherr Aerospace and Honeywell.
