The third Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) for Interjet has landed in Toluca (Mexico) to join the other two SSJ100 already in service with the airline.
The aircraft was rolled out from SuperJet International’s hangar in Venice (Italy) upon completion of customisation and technical acceptance procedure on 5 November and then took off from Venice Marco Polo airport for the ferry flight to Toluca.
“I am really proud because another new step has been done,” stated Nazario Cauceglia, chief executive officer of SuperJet International. “Another SSJ100 is now flying in the Americas. With more than two years in operation, the SSJ100 is [merging] into a single product the comfort of a narrowbody with the reduced costs and flexibility of a regional jet.”
The first two SSJ100 currently in service with Interjet are operating with over 99% dispatch reliability and an average daily utilisation of 9 flight hours.
