SuperJet International and US leasing company Willis Lease Finance Corporation have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the lessor to purchase six Sukhoi Superjet 100s with options for a further four of the type.
The first delivery of these LR aircraft in the 98-seat configuration is scheduled for September 2012.
The Sukhoi Superjet 100 programme is the largest industrial partnership between Europe and the Russian Federation in the civil aviation sector. The aircraft is currently in the final stages of certification with entry into service expected before the end of the year.
