MOSCOW, February 18. /TASS/. Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, producer of Sukhoi Superjet-100 planes, has not confirmed media reports that the Irish airline CityJet has sent all aircraft back.
"The report that the CityJet airline has returned SSJ-100 planes to their owner is inconsistent with the reality. Currently, the CityJet airline is revising its business model, in this context Sukhoi Civil Aircraft and CityJet are actively cooperating to solve this issue regarding the SSJ-100," the company’s press service told TASS.
Earlier, Vedomosti reported that CitiJet, the only European airline using the Russian aircraft, had returned the SSJ-100 to the lessor. According to the report, Brussels Airlines, which used CityJet’s aircraft, gave them up over the lack of spare parts.
