CAIRO (Sputnik) — Earlier on Tuesday, Manturov and Egyptian Minister of Civil Aviation Mohamed Hossam Kamal agreed that Russia must provide the best financial conditions for the deal.
Russia could deliver all 24 planes within three years if the Egyptian side makes the decision in the near future, the minister stressed.
On Monday, Kamal said that Egypt is interested in purchasing Russian SSJ100 aircraft for its national carrier Egypt Air.
The Superjet 100 is a twin-engine regional passenger airliner, which completed its maiden flight in 2008 before being sold commercially for the first time in 2011.
Currently, in various configurations and modifications 51 SSJ100 aircraft are being operated by Russian airlines — Aeroflot, Gazpromavia, Yakutia, Center-South, Red Wings, — and Mexican airline Interjet and special units of the Russian Government structures, according to Sukhoi.
