Venice (Italy) May 20, 2015
Another brand new Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) aircraft joined the Mexican Interjet’s fleet on the 20th of May. The aircraft (MSN95066) was rolled out from the SuperJet International’s facility in Venice (Italy) and took off from the “Marco Polo” Airport for its ferry flight to Mexico, stopping in Keflyavik (Iceland) and Bangor (Maine, USA).
“The 15th delivery to Interjet represents the first half of the total order signed by the Mexican airline for 30 SSJ100 in the 93-seats configuration,” says Nazario Cauceglia, CEO of SuperJet International. “It is a great result and by the end of 2015 we plan to deliver additional six aircraft”.
As stated by Interjet, the SSJ100 is confirming an excellent performance with a dispatch reliability’s average of 99%. The aircraft is also being appreciated by passengers for its outstanding comfort in the cabin, the wide overhead baggage space and the exclusive Pininfarina interior.
Interjet SSJ100s are being delivered under a three ECA deal, a multilateral export credit guaranteed by Coface (France), Sace (Italy) and EXIAR (Russia), which cover the total aircraft ordered by the Mexican airline and can be tailored for the new SSJ100 customers.
The Sukhoi Superjet 100 – developed by Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC) in partnership with Finmeccanica-Alenia Aermacchi – incorporates the most modern Western technology and systems, optimized power and efficiency, together with high standards of comfort available in the 100-seat segment.
