MOSCOW, September 26, /TASS/. Egyptian air carriers have been allowed to use Russia’s SSJ-100 aircraft, according to a statement of the Interstate Aviation committee (IAC).
The organization reported that the civil aviation authorities of Egypt issued a type certificate for the aircraft RRJ-95B (the name of Sukhoi Super Jet-100 used in technical documentation).

The cooperation of the aviation register of IAC and the Sukhoi Civil Aircraft company and Egypt’s air authorities as part of the agreement on airworthiness between the IAC and the Egyptian Civil Aviation Authority confirmed that its RRJ-95B aircraft meets modern international requirements for airworthiness and environmental protection," according to the statement.
The deliveries of Russian aircraft Sukhoi SuperJet-100 to Egypt will be discussed after the resumption of air links between Russia and Egypt, a source close to the manufacturer SSJ-100, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, told TASS.
