    The Russian-built Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ-100) aircraft could be delivered to Danish Greenland Express airline in the period of 2016-2018.

    SINGAPORE (Sputnik) — Danish Greenland Express airline is discussing the possibility of purchasing five Russian-built Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ-100) planes, sources close to the discussions said Tuesday.

    "Different issues are under discussion. There is no contract [at the moment], there is a discussion process and it has different options for obtaining the aircraft: purchase, operating lease or financial lease," the source told RIA Novosti.

    According to another source, the aircraft could be delivered in the period of 2016-2018.

    The SSJ-100 is a twin-engine regional passenger airliner, which completed its maiden flight in 2008 and was sold commercially for the first time in 2011.

    According to the aircraft manufacturer, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company, a total of 64 SSJ-100s are currently in operation. The main operators of the aircraft are the Russian flag carrier Aeroflot (26 aircraft), the Mexican airline Interjet (19 aircraft), and Gazpromavia (10 aircraft).
