Russia is interested in delivering its planes to Algeria: the Sukhoi Superject 100 (SSJ-100) and, over time, the MC-21. This issue was discussed within a working group, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak told reporters during the Russian-Algerian intergovernmental commission on trade economic and scientific technical cooperation.

"Russia is interested in delivering Russian-made planes to Algeria, including the Sukhoi Superjet 100 and, in the future, the MC-21. These issues are being discussed by the working group," Novak, who is a co-chairman of this commission, said.

The SSJ-100 is the first civil aircraft designed in Russia. This is a regional jet, the basic version of which has a flight range of 4,400 km and can carry 98 passengers. Its production started in 2011. The SSJ-100 is being operated in Mexico and Ireland.

The MC-21 airliner is being developed by the United Aircraft Corporation (which includes the Irkut aircraft manufacturer). Plans are in store to produce two of the plane’s versions: the MC-21-200, which will carry 132 to 165 passengers, and the MC-21-300, which will carry 163 to 211 passengers. The MC-21-300 made its first flight in late May 2017.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told TASS earlier that the date for the first official flight of the advanced Russian aircraft MC-21 will be released in October. The first deliveries of the plane are set for the end of 2018, and serial production is to be launched in 2017.
