The first medium-range passenger aircraft MS-21, which will be operated under the Yak-242 name, will rise into the air in June 2016, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Thursday.

“In a year we will start to use it, we will raise the aircraft in the air and thereby begin to replace imported aviation equipment at the national market of aviation communications,” – Rogozin said at the international forum of technological development “Tekhnoprom-2015”.

As Rogozin previously said, up to 50 MS-21 aircraft (Yak-242) for 180 passengers will be produced annually by 2018.
