Sursa: Stretched SSJ 100 Program Schedule Slides | Russian Aviation InsiderThe stretched version of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) will be certified in 2019 and enter market a year later, Ilya Tarasenko, president of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Comany’ (SCAC), told The Expert magazine. SCAC is counting on selling no less than 140 aircraft until 2031.
The SSJ 100SV will receive a new wing with higher aspect ratio for increased lift.
SCAC’s got all of its production slots contracted for the next three years, Tarasenko claimed. This year the OEM is planning to deliver 27 SSJ100s, out of which 20 have already been delivered to the customers: Interjet and Aeroflot received six aircraft each, Red Wings received five (of them one pre-owned), Gazprom – three. One aircraft destined for Comlux is still being customized. Along with that, Yamal Airlines will not receive two of its aircraft this year, contrary to previous announcements.
SCAC has revisited its forecast for SSJ 100 family production until 2031, bringing it down to 595 aircraft from the initial 830. Of them 82 will be basic version aircraft, 331 – Long Range version, 42 – Sukhoi Business Jet (SBJ) and around 140 – Stretched Version.
CityJet, the Irish European regional airline, today took delivery in Italy of its first Superjet SSJ100 aircraft. The ceremony was held in Venice at the SuperJet International’s premises where the first two Superjet SSJ100s in the CityJet livery were unveiled.
CityJet becomes the first European airline to operate the Superjet SSJ100. CityJet will lease 15 Superjet SSJ100 aircraft with an option for an additional 16. Dublin-based CityJet operates from key airports in Europe, including London City Airport. The airline expects take delivery of three aircraft in 2016, with the remainder from 2017 onwards. The inaugural aircraft unveiled today is expected to be delivered to Dublin early in June with the second arriving in mid-June.
The CityJet aircraft is in the 98-seat configuration with an exclusive interior designed by Pininfarina, five abreast seating in a generous 32” seat pitch combining with a wider seat and cabin height of over 2m.

We changed philosophy of the stretched version. The configuration now in development has metal wing redesigned to improve aspect ratio and get more aerodynamic efficiency. In the past there were discussions about the future of the NG variant. That time it was supposed to be a completely new aircraft with a composite wing and a brand new engine. Now the stretch version for us is a new wing design as I said but that wing is still made of metal. The engine is the same, yet with a 5% more thrust.
It will be a 120 seat aircraft, with the range of about 2000 nautical miles. Despite the stretch version, we want to remain a regional jet, strictly regional, not going close enough to the narrow body. We want to serve our distinct segment. The takeoff weight should be not more than 55 tons. So, the stretched version is going to be a good step forward, but strictly remaining in the regional jet segment. This is our goal. With this philosophy we also keep the price of the aircraft low. If you develop a completely new aircraft, someone has to pay the development costs. This means extra costs to airline customers. We will contain the development costs in check, and would be able to offer our customers a family of aircraft while maintaining the price at reasonably low level.
Embraer is our direct competitor. Bombardier’s new aircraft, the C Series, is bigger than “regional”, so it is not our competitor.
... nope: @raduvisitor, uite taman ce-au exersat optiunea pe 12*CS300 din cele 24 mentionate in scrisoarea de intentie din noiembrie.Interesant, mai ales dupa scrisoarea de intentie (din noiembrie) pentru CS300; inseamna ca nu iau in considerare si CS100 - prea mare/scump pentru intentiile lor.
Da, ar putea fi o strategie.Ceea ce nu-i impiedica sa continue discutiile si cu UAC. S-ar putea ca cele 12 optiuni de CS300 sa fie utilizate ca balansoar: spre Bombardier, cu argumentul ca rezervele pot fi ridicate cu inca un mic efort la pret. Iar catre UAC, pentru a le spune ca cele 12 aparate pot fi SSJ (prin exersarea optiunii pe toate 40) - sau vor exersa numai 28 daca Bombardier face eforturi si UAC nu.
