|Cityjet Superjet 100|
Vladislav Masalov, SCAC President said "After performing its first commercial flight on SSJ100 in June 2016, CityJet became the first European operator of this aircraft type. We are delighted to see another Sukhoi Superjet 100 to join the airline’s fleet and we are planning to deliver three SSJ100 more by the end of 2017 to support CityJet plans for development."
The airline operates the aircraft on charter services and on wet lease services on behalf of other airlines, where it provides the aircraft, crews and maintenance services for customer airlines.
The latest aircraft, registered EI-FWE, will be operated by CityJet on behalf of Brussels Airlines as part of a wet-lease agreement and is the third aircraft of this type operating for the Belgian airline.
The CityJet aircraft are delivered in a 98-seat configuration with an exclusive Pininfarina interior developed by the Italian design-bureau.
The SSJ100 features five-abreast seating with a 32 inch seat pitch and the passenger cabin’s height of more than 2 meters to provide comfort on the flight.
A further three Sukhoi Superjet 100 are to be delivered to Cityjet by end of year.
