"In 2016, 24 SSJ100 aircraft were built, including eight for export. This year we expect the delivery of 38 aircraft, and we will try to keep the bar at around 35-40 aircraft [per year] further," Slyusar said at a meeting with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev dedicated to support of the aviation industry.
The SSJ100 is a twin-engine plane made by Russia's Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company. It can transport up to 98 passengers at a distance of up to 2,700 miles, and costs around $36 million in its basic configuration. The jet made its maiden flight in May 2008.
