SINGAPORE, February 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Indonesia’s Sky Aviation air company has received three Russian-made Sukhoi SuperJet-100-95B’s, or SSJ-100-95B, under a contract for 12 such jets, Sky Aviation CEO, Yusuf Ardhi, told Itar-Tass on Tuesday on the sidelines of the Singapore Airshow-2014, adding that the contract would be fulfilled by the end of 2016.
Should the economic situation be favourable, it is not ruled out that the company could purchase more such jets after it receives the remaining nine SSJ’s under the contract, Ardahi said, adding that everything would depend on the financial situation.
Outside Russia and countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Indonesia is the world’s first operator of Sukhoi SuperJet-100 aircraft. Indonesia’s first SuperJet made its maiden flight in March 2013, the second such plane was put into operation in August 2013, and the third one has been in service since December 2013.
This aircraft “meets all our requirements,” the Sky Aviation CEO said. “It fits the conditions of our country, since it can take off and land at shorter runways. In terms of these parameters, SuperJet-100 is the best aircraft in its class.”
According to Ardhi, now that his company had purchased Sukhoi SuperJet-100 planes, it can make longer flights than its competitors. These aircraft are operated mostly on Indonesia’s domestic routes, performing flights to 14 destinations, including Sumatra and Bali. The occupancy rate is an average of 80 percent
Sukhoi SuperJet-100 is a regional 100-seat plane designed and made by Sukhoi Civil Aircraft in cooperation with Alenia Aermacchi. Its basic version can fly for a distance of up to 3,048 kilometres. An increased range is 4,578 kilometres. The Sukhoi SuperJet-100 family consists of two types of aircraft of basic and increased flying ranges with the carrying capacity of 75 and 95 passengers respectively.
