MOSCOW, March 16. /TASS/. Russian flag carrying airline Aeroflot plans signing a fixed-price agreement for delivery of twenty supplementary Sukhoi Superjet-100 airliners at the MAKS’2017 aerospace show, due to be held in July, the airline’s Director General Vitaly Savelyev told reporters.
"We haven’t signed the agreement yet because we’re awaiting proposals from the Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SSA) company so that we could contract a new batch of twenty jets," he said.
Aeroflot and the SSA signed a framework agreement at MAKS’2015.
"We’ve sent letters to Sukhoi because we’d like to sign it at MAKS but so far we haven’t received an answer from them," Savelyev said. "We hope though there’s still enough time left."
As the purchase of twenty jets is a major transaction, Aeroflot will most likely need endorsement by the general meeting of shareholders, he said without specifying the terms of the transaction.
"These terms will be acceptable for both sides, though," Savelyev said.
Aeroflot has thirty Sukhoi Superjet 100’s in its fleet right now. Savelyev said last year ten airliners from the batch could be handed over to Rossiya airline in 2017.
MAKS’2017 will be held in Zhukovsky near Moscow from July 18 through to July 23, 2017. The first aerospace show took place there in 1993 and they have been held on the biennial basis ever since then.
Slightly more than 400,000 people visited the show in 2015.
