YEKATERINBURG (Sputnik) — Russia is currently engaged in negotiations with several African countries, including Nigeria, Ghana, Zambia and Namibia, on the delivery of Russia's Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) planes, the deputy minister of the Russian Ministry of industry and trade, Georgy Kalamanov, told Sputnik on Wednesday.

"Active negotiations on the delivery of SSJ100 are being carried out with many African countries. First of all with Nigeria, Zambia, Ghana and Namibia," Kalamanov said.

The deputy trade minister noted that the establishment of a joint leasing company with African counterparts is currently being considered.

"It is expected that this project will also receive support from major pan-African institutions," Kalamanov added.

The SSJ100 is a twin-engine plane made by Russia's Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company. It can transport up to 98 passengers and fly distances of up to 2,700 miles. The jet made its maiden flight in May 2008.
