Venice (Italy) April 27, 2015
On April 22th, 2015 the 14th Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) arrived in Mexico to join the Interjet fleet.
The SSJ100 was rolled out from the SuperJet International’s hangar in Venice (Italy) and took off from “Marco Polo” Airport. During its ferry flight, the aircraft stopped in Keflyavik (Iceland) and Bangor (Maine, USA).
SuperJet International plans to deliver additional seven SSJ100 aircraft by the end of 2015. Four of them are currently under completion at the hangar in Venice.
Today the Interjet fleet includes thirteen SSJ100 aircraft, which are confirming an outstanding dispatch reliability with an average over the 99%. The aircraft are operated in the domestic Mexican market and on new routes to Houston and San Antonio (Texas).
Upon the completion of the 14th Interjet SSJ100, Mr. Nazario Cauceglia, Chief Executive Officer of SuperJet International, expressed his satisfaction for this additional result and said: “Today the SSJ100 Program is mature enough to handle new important tasks and go ahead to achieve the success it deserves”.
A SSJ100 was also displayed at the Mexico’s Aerospace Fair 2015 in Santa Lucia Military Airbase (Mexico) last week, where the public appreciated the aircraft with the Interjet livery and the exclusive interior designed by Italian Pininfarina.
Interjet ordered 30 SSJ100 in the 93-seats (34’ pitch) configuration. The SSJ100 is developed by Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC), in partnership with Finmeccanica-Alenia Aermacchi. The aircraft incorporates the most modern Western technology and systems, optimized power and efficiency, together with high standards of comfort available in the 100-seat segment.
