Aeroflot (Moscow Exchange ticker: AFLT) has taken delivery of its seventh full-specification Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ-100). The plane has been named in honour of Dmitry Barilov, a Soviet pilot and the founder of the Barilov dynasty, well-known in Aeroflot. The aircraft was delivered to Aeroflot directly from the manufacturer.
