Customization of the business version of the regional Sukhoi Superjet 100 airplane (SSJ 100) will be carried out on a site in Venice. In total 4–5 versions of the unified salons which will be intended first of all for foreign customers will be developed. Their unification is necessary for optimization of the expenses connected with development and production the senior vice-president of “Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company” (GSS) for sales Evgeny Andrachnikov has told within an air show in Dubai.
“We have made the joint decision with partners that we develop finishing “the green version” (unpainted airplanes without salon. — A comment of ATO.ru) to a business jet on the Venetian site for our foreign clients” — Andrachnikov has declared. Now in Venice on the Superjet International platform (SJI; JV GSS and Alenia Aeronautica) is carried out customization only of standard SSJ 100.
According to the president of GSS Ilya Tarasenko, development and certification of new salons will take about a year. He has also specified that the company already has a number of clients who have shown interest in new interiors. It is expected that the first of them will be offered at the end of 2016 — the beginning of 2017.
Today in operation there is only one airplane in the business version. It is used for the benefit of state structures under the flag of Rusdzhet airline. As have explained in GSS, on it the Aerostayl company in Russia was engaged in installation of an interior in AF. Customization of other SSJ 100 in the VIP-version (including Sukhoi Business Jet versions which differs in installation of auxiliary fuel tanks), also generally is entrusted to the Russian enterprises. The airplane for the Kazakhstan division of the Swiss business operator Comlux in which customization the American center of the operator located in Indianapolis was engaged became the only SBJ on which salon is established by the foreign company.
The United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) which structure includes GSS have also reported that the interior of Pininfarina which has equipped SSJ 100 of the Mexican low-cost airline Interjet passes certification in Russia. Obtaining the certificate is planned for 2016 then its installation will be available to the Russian airlines.
