Official representatives of SCO countries visited the aircraft plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur

Within the framework of the second meeting of the organization’s diplomatic club, delegates discussed the prospect of creating a Russian-Chinese long-haul aircraft, new sales markets, and the development of regional traffic between the organization’s member countries.

The head of the United Aircraft Building Corporation, Mikhail Pogosyan, told reporters about the prospects for cooperation with Asian countries.

The visit of the ambassadors of the SCO countries to the Komsomolsk aircraft plant provided for an introduction to the possibilities that the enterprise has today, as well as a discussion of closer integration of the countries in the field of aviation and regional transportation.

We have a number of joint projects with individual states. For example, the creation of a wide-body aircraft with Chinese colleagues. And with India, we are developing a fifth-generation fighter and a multi-purpose transport aircraft. But such projects in the future may go beyond the bilateral framework, and the SCO countries may become a natural promising market for Russian air carriers.

When asked whether Western sanctions had been impacted on deliveries of parts of components for imported SSJ100 aircraft, Mikhail Pogosyan said that: the civil aviation market is a deeply integrated, global market. And here there are both deliveries of foreign components to Russia, and the shipment of Russian components to the USA, to Europe. Despite the difficult geopolitical situation, we managed to preserve all the agreements and relations with foreign partners. This also applies to the Sukhoi Superjet and MS-21 projects. Certainly, the sanctions interfere with work, since the procedures for attracting long-term financing are delayed primarily for this view. Cooperation with the SCO countries becomes particularly relevant.
