Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) plans to manufacture six MC-21 passenger planes in 2021 and twice as many in 2022, bringing the output to 72 aircraft by 2025, Valery Okulov, adviser to UAC’s director general, said on Tuesday. This reported by TASS.

"It is planned to manufacture six MC-21 planes in 2021, twelve in 2022, and 25 in 2023. It is planned to bring the MC-21 output to 72 a year by 2025," he said.

Apart from that, he said that it was planned to manufacture 155 SSJ 100 aircraft by the end of 2019, 185 such planes in 2020, and 215 - in 2021.

UAC CEO Yuri Slyusar said in mid-November that the corporation planned to increase production of MC-21 medium-haul single-aisle passenger planes to 120 a year. So far, the corporation is capable of manufacturing 70 such aircraft a year.
