Egypt, Denmark to buy Russian Sukhoi airliners

Russia’s Sukhoi Civil Aircraft expects to ink a contract to supply four Superjet airliners, with an option for six more to Egyptian charter airline Air Leisure within weeks, said Vice-President of United Aircraft Corporation Vladislav Masalov.

A memorandum on the aircraft sale was agreed earlier this month and financial conditions remain the key issue, according to Masalov.

Danish airline Greenland Express is discussing buying five SSJ-100 planes, RIA Novosti reported on Monday citing unnamed sources.

“There is no contract, but different issues are under discussion like options for obtaining the aircraft: purchase, operating lease or financial lease,” one source said.

According to another source, the aircraft could be delivered within the next two years.

One of the biggest airlines in Europe, Air France-KLM, intends to wet lease Superjets from Irish regional airline CityJet this May.
