The MC-21-310 aircraft sets a new standard of comfort for narrow-body aircraft, which meets the standards of long-haul aircraft, and the dimension of the cabin is chosen taking into account the tendency towards increasing the anthropometric parameters of passengers.


The cooperation under the MC–21 program includes leading Russian manufacturers of aviation systems. High quality is ensured by the introduction of digital technologies in the design and production of aircraft. As part of the MC-21 program, the technological renewal of the Russian aviation industry is being carried out.


Advanced aerodynamics, engines and systems of the latest generation ensure high flight performance and low operating costs.

Aircraft design

  • high aerodynamic perfection due to the high-aspect ratio composite wing
  • the share of composites in the structure is more than 30%
  • a new generation PD-14 engine that provides reduced fuel consumption
  • digital control system with quadruple redundancy
  • active linked control side sticks
  • the aircraft meets promising environmental requirements for noise and emissions
  • the largest width of the passenger compartment and the aisle between the seats in its class

For passengers

  • expanded personal space for each passenger
  • increased freedom of movement on the plane
  • increased volume of overhead bins
  • more comfortable cabin pressure for passengers, corresponding to the height of 1800 m
  • increased size of windows

For the airline

Operation and service

The aircraft can operate in all climatic zones with temperatures from - 55 °C to + 55 °C and at airfields with an altitude of up to 4060 m above sea level. Fast and high-quality after-sales support.

Form factor

The cross–section of the aircraft is optimal for a wide range of carriers and types of airlines - from low-budget and charter to premium airlines. Workspace for the crew is expanded. It is possible to choose the most appropriate ratio of "seat cushion width / aisle width".

Modular design

Advanced features of interior configuration for individual customer requirements. The onboard equipment has a modular design and adapts to the needs of airline.

Cost saving

Reduced fuel consumption, as well as noise and emissions. Reduced boarding and disembarkation time.
