Air Kyrgyzstan is interested in buying Russian aircraft, including the SSJ100 and MS-21, following meeting between the governments of Kyrgyzstan and Russia.

The airline plans to buy used SSJ100s, with talks already ironed out on the deal. Discussions on the MS-21 have only just begun.

This follows recent plan by Russia to establish subsidies for maintenance centers for the MS-21 and SSJ100, to “ensure the smooth operation of domestic aircraft”.
