The evolution of flight

SSJ100, the first airliner in which engine and airframe have been designed together to optimize performance. The SSJ100 – a fusion of Russia’s famed aviation design and production skills with the latest systems from leading aerospace suppliers around the world – offers standards of economy, performance, environmental efficiency and passenger comfort never before seen in a 100-seat airliner.


The SSJ100 is designed, developed and built by Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (from the 17th of February – “Regional Aircraft – Branch of the Irkut Corporation”), in partnership with Finmeccanica-Alenia Aermacchi.

On May 19th 2008 SSJ100 successfully accomplished its first flight.
The Sukhoi Superjet 100 cruises at a Maximum Operating Speed of Mach 0.81 and 40,000 feet. It takes off from a 1,731 meters runway in the basic range and 2,052 meters in the long range. The operating range for the basic version is 3,048 km and 4,578 km for the long range version. Sukhoi Superjet 100 is equipped with two SaM 146 turbofans.

Today the SSJ100 is certified by EASA, FATA and multiple National Aviation Authorities. In 2011 the first production SSJ100 entered into service.


Fly-by-wire: first time at regional jet

Crew-centered design featuring intuitive controls designed with the pilot in mind. The SSJ100 is the first 100-seat jet with a full fly-by-wire (FBW) system, designed to optimize handling, reduce flight crew workload, and maximize fuel efficiency


Leading names in world aviation

The SSJ100 follows the tradition of Russian airframe excellence, adding state-of-the-art avionics and controls sourced from leading suppliers to produce an aircraft ready to face the world’s most challenging operating environments.


A sensation of space for passengers

Narrow-body space in a compact airliner comfortable for passengers, profitable for operators.
Passengers will notice the difference as soon as they step aboard – unlike the “tunnel effect” of other aircraft of this class, the spacious and airy cabin of the SSJ100 sets it apart from its competitors.


Comfortable, profitable, convenient, greener
The Sukhoi Superjet 100 philosophy is simple: to deliver a superior experience. More comfort for passengers, more profitability for operators, more support and better systems for crews, and better environmental performance.





Ranging far and wide

Efficient engines in a lightweight airframe extend the range and increase the number of possible routes.


Cutting the costs from design to operation

The clean-sheet design of the SSJ100 gives it an economic edge over its rivals, saving money in the air and on the ground.


Reducing environmental impact

The SSJ100 emits about 1.5 tons of CO2 less per trip compared to its direct competitor. The high-tech long-duct nacelles carrying the SaM146 engines are designed to optimize acoustic performance, with the result that the SSJ100 meets ICAO Chapter 4 noise regulations – meaning that it is permitted to operate from any airport.
