Sukhoi Superjet 100 is certified in Mexico
Sukhoi Superjet 100 is a passenger aircraft produced by Sukhoi, a major Russian fighter jet manufacturer. On April 16, the Superjet 100 (model RRJ-95B) was also validated in Mexico by the Aviation Authority of Mexico and the General Directorate of Civil Aeronautics.
The validation certificate confirms that Sukhoi Superjet 100 complies with the requirements of the Mexican authorities regarding flight safety and may be marketed without restrictions.
Interjet Airlines will be the first airline in Latin America to use this type of aircraft. In January 2011, Interjet signed a contract with Sukhoi for 15 Superjet 100 units, and the delivery of the first aircraft is scheduled for the end of 2012.
Sukhoi Superjet 100 has a range of up to 4578 km and can be found in the Ariavia and Aeroflot fleets.
