Moscow and Cairo will sign a memorandum on Tuesday for the delivery of four SSJ100 passenger planes to Egypt, said Russian Trade Minister Denis Manturov.

The deal includes an option for the purchase of six additional aircrafts, according to the Russian trade minister.

"We believe that tomorrow colleagues must sign a memorandum with one of Egypt's air tourism companies. They will sign a memorandum on supplying Egypt with four Sukhoi Superjet aircraft… to transport tourists within the region, particularly Egypt itself," Manturov told reporters.

The Superjet 100 is a twin-engine regional passenger airliner which completed its maiden flight in 2008 and was sold commercially for the first time in 2011.
