The General Director of “Aeroflot” Valery Okulov sees the key advantage of the RRJ Program in its global marketability: “Aeroflot” is a national flag carrier, the leader setting the standards of the Russian air transport industry and we are happy that none other than Russian-made aircraft – RRJ95- integrally fits our plans to build up a modern fleet”.

“Today the RRJ Program has won a national priority status. The Agreement with Aeroflot is a sign of credibility to the program validating “Sukhoi’s” strategy  to become the first Russian commercial airplane manufacturer offering the product superceding not only the national, but the global market competitors; the product which 100% meets the existing and perspective market requirements”, stated “Sukhoi” Holding General Director Mikhail Pogosyan commenting the deal.
