MOSCOW, October 5. /TASS/. United Aircraft Corporation is in talks to supply 15 SSJ-100 aircraft to the British airline CityJet, United Aircraft Corporation Head Yuri Slusar told journalists Monday.
"We are negotiating with the company, but it is too early to talk about the specifics. We hope that the company will evaluate the advantages of our aircraft and the marching financial package. But I would not talk about the deal in terms of "opening a window" to Europe. Yes, it is a major customer and the fact that it will carry out flights from central London on the SSJ-100 aircraft is prestigious for us," he said.
According to Slusar, United Aircraft Corporation managed to interest CityJet shareholders. "We believe we have the best offer," he said.
In addition, Slusar said that the deal with the Egyptian company Egyptair - "is a matter of weeks, not months."
Speaking about the contract with the Russian State Transport Leasing Company Slusar said that there is "a good chance" for selling 32 aircraft to the Russian regional companies.
"Taking into account the depletion of regional passenger traffic now there will be an increased demand for SSJ class aircraft that could replace aircraft of larger capacity - Boeing 737 and Airbus 320," he said.
