One of the leading aviapoletov of the world Flightglobal summed up that the makers of the Sukhoi SuperJet 100 aircraft in total has reached the desired, However, the success of an airliner in competitive battle as long as questionable.
"In many ways, the makers of the Sukhoi SuperJet has achieved what he wanted. This five-piece Stastny the plane at a reasonable price, while it stands out among competitors With the position of the width of the cabin and comfort, " writes Flightglobal, adding, because It's the 1st Russian plane oriented on the Western market.
However, the journal emphasizes, the SSJ 100 until not implemented in sufficient quantity. Although all were produced about a hundred aircraft, as long as such machines have decided to buy Only one Western airline, and Moscow have to provide cash support to the manufacturer – GSS. With the weakening of the ruble supply from Europe and North America equipment for the production of the SSJ 100 has become more expensive. And the relationship between " Dry " and its Italian partner Alenia Aermacchi was tense even before political tensions between Russia and Europe over Ukraine. A contract for production and delivery of fifteen aircraft CityJet Irish magazine calls a " breakthrough ", noting that the deal will not save the program itself, but may give confidence to other European operators that as long as doubt to purchase Russian Airliners. In a competition created With the Brazilian aircraft Embraer E-Jet E2 " Dry " must resist the temptation to reduce costs by replacing Western suppliers to Russia. This in one fell swoop will kill the prospects in the West. Instead of SSJ 100 manufacturers are obliged to focus on creating larger versions of the aircraft and increase engine performance. Only so Superjet can be a serious player in the market, says Flightglobal. Before the head of the organization SuperJet international (SJI) Nazario Cautela said to replace the European and North American suppliers of components for the Sukhoi SuperJet 100 on the Russian impossible. In the last month of summer, the manufacturer of the plane – the Company "Sukhoi Civil aircraft" said that wants to reduce spending on the making of one of the aircraft SSJ 100 for 2, 6 million dollars at the expense of attraction of the Russian suppliers, From whom you can pay in a very rapidly depreciating rubles. On 13 October the Irish airline CityJet and "Sukhoi Civil aircraft" (SCAC) signed a contract for production and delivery of fifteen aircraft SSJ 100 With an option for another 10 ships, totaling more than $ 1 billion, according to a report GSS. It's the 1st contract for the production and delivery of SSJ 100 in the European Union. Before the plane was delivered Only to Asia and Mexico. Interest in the SSJ 100 has been Iran, Egypt, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates.
