Sukhoi Superjet 100 to join the fleet of Centre-South Airlines

03/22/2014 | by Sukhoi from press release

On March 21, 2014 the first Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft was delivered to the new Russian customer Centre-South Airlines. The aircraft with the tail number RA-89004 performed a ferry flight from the Delivery Center of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC) in Zhukovsky to the Sheremetyevo International Airport.

SCAC delivered the aircraft, MSN 95012, to Centre-South Airlines under a Lease Agreement. The airline has ordered two SSJ100 and the second aircraft is expected to be delivered in March 2014.

Both aircraft will be operated for the benefit of AtlasJet company which is focused on arranging charter flights.

The first Centre-South Airlines’ SSJ100 is named after Oleg Kuprikov who played a significant role in development of the Russian charter service market.

The aircraft has a total of 87 seats in a two-class layout design: 12 seats in business class and 75 in economy.

Centre South Airlines decided to unveil its new corporate livery by using the newly delivered SSJ100 aircraft. The new painting scheme displays the corporate style emphasizing the airline’s main areas of activity.

Centre-South Airlines, based in Belgorod, Russia, has been operating in the business aviation market for more than 20 years. The SSJ100 aircraft will perform private and corporate charter flights to different destinations across Russia and Europe.

Taking into account the increasing demand for corporate and VIP transportation, the fleet expansion with SSJ100 aircraft will allow Centre-South Airlines to respond to customer demands as quickly as possible, by a reduced aircraft turn-around-time.

The wide interiors and the superior comfort of the SSJ100 along with the high-quality services offered by the airline, will provide Center South Airlines’ customers with an outstanding flying experience.

Centre-South Airlines is taking advantage of a heavily reduced delivery time, being the aircraft re-market SSJ100s, which have previously been in operation. With this approach, the airline has the opportunity to focus on its main mission, reacting to the market changing trends and increasing its profitability by putting the aircraft in revenue service in timely manner.
