    Russian Aircraft manufacturer could deliver about 100 Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) planes to Iran after sanctions imposed on the country are fully lifted, President of SCAC Ilya Tarasenko said Sunday.

    DUBAI (Sputnik) — "There is a huge interest, we expect to deliver some 100 aircraft… We have discussed the deliveries with the potential airline companies from Iran and expect some 100 planes [to be delivered]," Tarasenko told journalists.

    He added that Iran could be also involved in the process of SSJ100 production on its territory after examination of Iranian industrial capacities and necessary certification. According to Tarasenko, Tehran could produce details for SSJ100 airframes and aftersales service.

    On July 14, Iran and the P5+1 group of Russia, the United States, China, the United Kingdom, France and Germany signed a historic deal, in which Tehran agreed to guarantee the peaceful nature of its nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief. 

    The Russia-produced SSJ 100 is the first aircraft in its class to offer five abreast seating combined with a cabin height of over 2 meters.
