SINGAPORE, February 13/ ITAR-TASS/. The emergence of Sukhoi Superjet-100 (SSJ-100) in Mexico is the first step on the way to the U.S. market, the president of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) Mikhail Pogosyan told Itar-Tass at the Singapore Airshow-2014.
“This is a step not only towards the Latin American market, but also towards North America,” he said. According to Pogosyan, five aircraft have been supplied to the Mexican company Interjet, five further planes are planned for purchase. After five months in service the aircraft drew positive comments. Interjet is satisfied with after-sales maintenance. Any arising faults are promptly eliminated, which does not require any special qualification, Pogosyan explained. The aircraft flew an average of seven hours in six flights of the company’s very “tough flight network”, he added.
“Planes fly intensively and prove highly reliable,” he said adding that the use of SSJ-100 in Mexico required a number of certificates.
Pogosyan described the competitive environment in Mexico as favourable for SSJ-100 citing comfort, safety and reliability as well as environmental compliance as Superjet’s key edges.
