Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company and SuperJet International (a joint venture between Leonardo-Finmeccanica Company and Sukhoi Holding) celebrated the delivery of the first Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) to CityJet, which becomes the first European SSJ100 customer. The Irish airline will lease 15 SSJ100 aircraft with an option for additional 16.SSJ_CJ_1920

The airline will receive three three aircraft in 2016, with the remainder from 2017. The SSJ 100 achieved EASA certification in 2012.  This was a crucial win, and now delivery, for the SSJ.  The company recently lost an EU customer in VLM.  CityJet’s use of the aircraft in Europe will ensure other airlines get to see it perform. If the aircraft performs as well as it has in Mexico, other airlines are likely to step up for it too.  It is an attractive sized trunk airliner and priced well, too.

Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much.
