Russia to export 10 Superjet 100 planes in 2012

PanARMENIAN.Net - Russia will export 10 Sukhoi Superjet 100 airplanes in 2012, United Aircraft Corporation CEO Mikhail Pogosyan said on Friday, February 23, RIA Novosti reported.

The planes will be delivered to Mexico, Indonesia, and Laos in the second half of the year, he added.

So far, only one plane has been exported and that was to Armenia.

Another 10 SSJ 100s will be delivered to domestic airlines Aeroflot and Armavia.

The Superjet 100 is a medium-haul passenger aircraft developed by Sukhoi in cooperation with U.S. and European aviation corporations, including Boeing, Snecma, Thales, Messier Dowty, Liebherr Aerospace and Honeywell.

The aircraft is capable of carrying up to 100 passengers for up to 4,500 kilometers.

In early February SSJ 100 received the Type Certificate from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

Sukhoi has received over 200 firm orders for Superjet 100 airliners so far.
