The JSC Sukhoi Company is a major Soviet and now Russian aircraft manufacturer and designs both civilian and military aircraft. It was founded by Pavel Sukhoi in 1939 as the Sukhoi Design Bureau.
Expanding its economic co-operation with Islamabad, Russia is studying the possibility of exporting its SSJ100 passenger jets, made by Russia ‘s Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company, to Pakistan.
The talk about delivering 6-16 civilian planes will continue next year hopefully.
New chapter of economic relations between Pakistan and Russia are on the brink of a new beginning, with a 64-member Russian high-level delegation present in the country keen to invest up to $10 billion in Pakistan.
“We are communicating directly with Pakistan Air, we are conducting negotiations with this company, and we have agreed that work will continue in January, given that we should make calculations regarding the destination network with our colleagues. This is about the possible delivery of from six to 16 SSJ100s,” Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov.
We have all the necessary capabilities for this from the point of view of financial support, and the question arises of service – we will have to find a solution with our colleagues on what basis and at what number of aircraft it will be most effective,” he added.
The announcement was made during the sixth session of the Pak-Russia Inter-Governmental Commission on Trade, Economic, and Scientific Technical Cooperation in Islamabad.
The Minister for Economic Affairs, Hammad Azhar is leading the Pakistani delegation while the 64-member Russian side is led by its trade minister Denis Valentinovich.
