Russian flag-carrier Aeroflot has signed an acceptance agreement for its sixth Sukhoi Superjet 100 twinjet, which will be flown to Moscow next week.

The aircraft, bearing serial number 95013 and registration RA-89005, will be transferred from the airframer's plant at Komsomolsk-on-Amur on 5 March.

Sukhoi said that the aircraft "is painted in the SkyTeam livery" and "ready to start commercial operation".

"The document signed by the parties states that the aircraft is technically sound and fully meets the performance criteria," it added.

European Aviation Safety Agency regulators last month awarded a type certificate for the aircraft.
