Russia: Iran Interested in Buying 100 Sukhoi Jets

Iran has shown interest in purchasing 100 Russia’s Sukhoi Superjet-100 medium-haul passenger planes but the agreement has only been reached regarding 12 aircraft at present, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Saturday.
“We are working out with our Iranian partners [for the] supply of our Sukhoi Superjet-100 aircraft. Our colleagues have confirmed that there is a concrete agreement for 12 planes already. In the short term, we are considering 30 aircraft. This is just the beginning, because overall, Iranians are interested in purchasing 100 Sukhoi Superjet aircraft,” Novak was reported as saying by Sputnik.
On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said talks were underway about exporting SSJ100 planes to Iran.
The SSJ100 is a twin-engine plane made by Russia’s Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company. It can transport up to 98 passengers over a distance of 2,700 miles and costs around $36 million in its basic configuration. The jet made its maiden flight in May 2008.
