On April 3, 2017 the fifth SSJ100 aircraft has joined the fleet of Irkutsk-based IrAero Airlines. The aircraft has been delivered under Sukhoi Superjet 100 delivery contract entered into between the operator and State Transport Leasing Company (STLC).
Aircraft with RA-89075 tail number has performed a ferry flight from SCAC Delivery Center in Zhukovsky to Irkutsk, IrAero’s base airport.
This Sukhoi Superjet 100 in its Long Range version has been delivered to IrAero Airlines in 100-seat configuration. The concept of such passenger cabin was suggested by SCAC customer, State Transport Leasing Company (STLC), under the contract for delivery of SSJ100 aircraft.
One of the differential characteristics of the interior is the possibility to change the aircraft passenger configuration. Depending on the operator’s actual needs, the SSJ100 can feature either 100-seat single class configuration or dual class 93-seat configuration.
SSJ100 airplanes are operated by the Airline since July 2016. Due to introduction of Sukhoi Superjet 100 in its fleet, IrAero has actively started to extend its flight geography.
Currently IrAero routes network with SSJ100 fleet includes routes in Russia and abroad. IrAero also puts this type of aircraft on charter flights.
Since the entry into service, the Company’s fleet of Sukhoi Superjet 100 has accumulated 4000 flight hours.
