The flight certification program for the Russian MC-21 airliner has been completed, Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov said in an interview with Rossiya 24 TV channel last Friday.

“We have completed the MCS-21 flight certification program and expect to receive a type certificate in the near future,” he said.

ATR delivers its 1,600th aircraft to Air New Zealand.

Manturov recalled that commercial deliveries of the aircraft should begin next year.

The MC-21 is a narrow-body airliner, which is being developed at the Irkut Aviation Plant and seeks to compete with the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320.
