FARNBOROUGH, July 12. /TASS/. Russia’s Sukhoi Civil Aircraft plans to open a representative office in China by the end of this year, official representative of the company told TASS on Tuesday.
"This will be our first overseas representative office; it will be based in Beijing. Its functionality will comprise marketing and sales of the whole range of SSJ-100 jets, their after-sales service, certification and interaction with financial institutions,’ he said.
The representative office is the business base for setup of a leasing company to sell SSJ-100 jet liners in China, the company said.
It was reported earlier the Russian-Chinese Investment Fund, the United Aircraft Corporation, and China’s New Century International Leasing would create a leasing company. The company is to lease 100 aircraft to airlines in China and Southeast Asia in the coming three years.
