Reading Time: 1 minute

I1GRQPI7I5Russia’s Sukhoi Civil Aircraft will supply Laos and Indonesia with a total of thirteen new SSJ 100-95 aircraft, Russia’s Minister for Economic Development, Alexei Ulyukayev, has announced.

The RIA Novosti newswire states that while the exact terms of the agreements were not disclosed, Ulyukayev did state that three of the jets would go to Laos while ten would head for Indonesia. In addition, he said, talks are ongoing for the supply of aircraft to Vietnam.

The dormant Sky Aviation was the only operator of the type in Indonesia with three (previously) in service while the also dormant Lao Central Airlines had operated one.

The Sukhoi Superjet 100 is a modern fly-by-wire regional jet in the 100 to 108 seat category. With development initiated in 2000, the airliner was designed and spearheaded by Sukhoi, a division of the Russian Civil Aerospace Company (UAC), in co-operation with several foreign partners.

Designed to compete internationally with its Antonov An-158, Embraer and Bombardier counterparts, the Superjet 100 claims substantially lower operating costs, at a lower purchase price of $35 million.

Up to now, the manufacturer has delivered more than 40 jets to carriers and has a total of 310 orders in the books. Aeroflot is Sukhoi’s largest customer with currently 30 orders. Thailand’s Orient Thai Airlines has ordered 12 Sukhoi Superjets. A 50-jet order from Indonesia’s Kartika Airlines is still under negotiation as the airline has run into financial problems.
