Russia and China have signed an agreement today to set up a leasing company to support sales of Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft for an approximate US$ 3 billion in China and South-East Asia for the next three years, UAC Russia said in a release.

The framework agreement was supported by the Russia-China Intergovernmental Commission. The parties to the agreement were the Russia-China Investment Fund (RCIF), Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (part of United Aircraft Corporation), Xixian New Area Administrative Committee and New Century International Leasing from China.

The agreement is twice the total number of jets that have already been delivered to the customers.

The new leasing company will be headquartered in the Sino-Russia High-Tech Innovation Park (SHIP) in Xixian, Shaanxi, one of centers of PRC’s aviation industry. The municipal administration will also assist by providing land plots to create the infrastructure required to accommodate and maintain the SSJ100 jets.

Sukhoi Superjet 100 is a modern fly-by-wire twin-engine regional jet with 8 VIP to 108 passenger seats.
