The Aviation Register of the Interstate Aviation Committee confirmed the possibility to equip the Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft with the enhanced comfort passenger cabin interior. This Major Change Approval to the baseline Sukhoi Superjet 100 Type Design, issued by IAC AR In late November 2014, confirms the safe operation of this aircraft type in the VIP configuration submitted for certification.
“Our Company is now engaged in the activities aimed to introduce the Sukhoi Superjet 100 business version. The SSJ100 business jet version will meet not only the highest requirements for comfort but also serve the demand for long non-stop flights which is increasingly evident in the changing business aviation market”, noted Ilia Tarasenko, President of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company. “The certification achieved on the enhanced comfort interior is another milestone in the planned development of the SSJ100 business version”.
The aircraft, which is based on the baseline RRJ-95B platform certificate, is characterized by the more comfortable passenger cabin achieved by fitting the newly-developed VIP-interior, the provision of higher level of service and the provision of on-board multimedia systems. Together, this makes it possible to both work and relax during flights.
The SSJ100 VIP interior is designed for 19 passengers, hosted in a passenger cabin divided into several sections.
The first and second section, intended for business meetings, are equipped with comfortable furniture, state-of-the-art multimedia systems and rotating-sliding seats.
The main passenger cabin is equipped with a full-scale working station, furniture to relax and a wardrobe. A separate lavatory is provided at the rear of the aircraft, just past the main passenger cabin.
The service section includes two cabin crew seats, a pantry-galley module with the latest equipment, a crew and passenger lavatory, as well as a wardrobe for passengers’ carry-on baggage.
The certified cabin configuration was designed with reference to the requirements of the launch customer, the Russian Government, which has placed a firm order for the new variant. The spacious cabin of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 allows for great flexibility in interior configurations, enabling the aircraft to meet all customer preferences and needs.
As a business jet, the Sukhoi Superjet 100 VIP is firmly placed in the Ultra Large category, characterized by long range and spacious cabins, while also offering very competitive acquisition and ownership costs.
