SINGAPORE, February 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s promising twin-engine jet airliner MS-21 will be, possibly, promoted to China’s market, president of the United Aircraft Corporation Mikhail Pogosyan told Itar-Tass on the sidelines of the Singapore Airshow 2014 on Thursday.
“We believe that the Chinese market develops so intensively that it has niches for new players. Our products give new level opportunities for local air carriers,” he said, adding that Russia and China had been cooperating in civil aviation.
Referring to the two countries’ experience in military aircraft building, Pogosyan said the Chinese market’s growth rates proved “a good alternative” for the United Aircraft Corporation.
“We consider cooperation not only in the segment of regional planes, but we also enhance cooperation in other projects, in particular on wide-body planes,” he added.
