SuperJet International – joint venture between Finmeccanica-Alenia Aermacchi and Sukhoi Holding – is pleased to announce that the Mexican airline Interjet confirmed the option for additional 10 Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft.
In 2011 Interjet originally ordered 15 SSJ100 and 5 options. The 5 options became firm in July 2012 at Farnborough Air Show. In November 2012, during ALTA Leaders Forum in Panama, Interjet announced the addition of 10 options which have been executed today leading the total firm order to 30 aircraft.
The value of the new option batch is 350 million US Dollars.
“This order confirms the solid relationship we have been able to build up with our Customer but also the sound reliability of our product which is definitely one of the main drivers in Interjet choice. The SSJ100 is a super optimized aircraft, equipped with advanced technology and offering attractive cash operating costs. We are sure that customers will continue looking at the SSJ100 as a main player in the regional market – states Nazario Cauceglia, Chief Executive Officer of SuperJet International.
