Russia’s Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCA) and Peruvian Airlines signed an agreement of intent to purchase 10 SSJ-100, 100-seater planes and 10 MC-21 medium haul passenger jets at the Farnborough Air Show on Monday.

Peruvian Airlines plans to set up a subsidiary to operate SSJ-100 passenger jets, Chief Executive of the airline Cesar Catano told TASS.
