    Moscow and Cairo will sign a memorandum on Tuesday for the delivery of four SSJ100 passenger planes to Egypt, Russian Trade Minister Denis Manturov said.

    CAIRO (Sputnik) — The deal includes an option for the purchase of six additional aircraft, according to the Russian trade minister.

    "We believe that tomorrow colleagues must sign a memorandum with one of Egypt's air tourism companies. They will sign a memorandum on supplying Egypt with four Sukhoi Superjet aircraft… to transport tourists within the region, particularly Egypt itself," Manturov told reporters.

    The Superjet 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.
