MOSCOW, July 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s United Aircraft (UAC) will soon complete talks about supplying ten additional Russian-Italian built Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) planes to the Mexican air carrier Interjet, UAC President Mikhail Pogosyan said on Tuesday.

Under the contract, Interjet will receive a total of 20 aircraft aimed to help the air carrier expand the number of flights and routes.

Interjet is the first Latin American company to have bought SSJ100. Last year, it exported four SSJ100; 11 more are to be supplied in 2014.

At Singapore Airshow-2014 in February, Pogosyan described SSJ100 operation in Mexico as the first step to starting supplies to the U.S. Over the five months of SSJ100 use, the Mexican customers provided positive feedback about the aircraft with seven daily average flying hours in Interjet’s tight flight plan of six flights. Flights were intensive, Pogosyan added, and “the aircraft proved reliable”.
