SSJ100 to be showcased during Russia-Africa Economic Forum in Sochi

Posted 22 October 2019 · Add Comment

SSJ100 aircraft in its basic and business configurations will be demonstrated at Russia-Africa Economic Forum in Sochi this week.

 

During the summit the aircraft will be located in Sochi’s airport named after V. Sevastyanov.

African market is a good opportunity for a regional aircraft with the capacity of up to 100 pax due to the specifics of the passenger flow in the region. The bigger part of such passenger flow falls to the intercontinental and domestic flights. Key potential countries to operate SSJ100 are RSA, Nigeria, Angola and some Maghreb countries. They are characterized by the most developed route network and stable economic relations with Russia.

“SSJ100 can be operated in the most efficient way by the airlines with a traffic volume from 50 up to 200 thousand passengers per year. This includes flights between the countries of South, Western and Eastern Africa. They account for almost 60% of all passenger traffic in Africa South of the Sahara,” said Andrey Lebedinets, deputy director general for marketing and business development of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company.

SSJ100 manufacturer, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC), is assessing the model of entrance to the African market. It purports, among others, establishment of MRO in one of the key locations (from the passenger transportation point of view) to enable aircraft wet lease to the domestic airlines. Russian manufacturer intends not only to deliver the aircraft themselves, but to support establishment of the required infrastructure in the region.
