Kartika Airlines orders for 15 Sukhoi Superjet 100s
Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC) and Kartika Airlines have signed a Heads of Agreement for the airline to buy 15 Sukhoi Superjet 100s and another 15 on option. The order is valued at $448 million at list prices. Kartika becomes the first SSJ100 customer in South-East Asia.
“With Kartika Airlines being our launch customer in South-East Asia we are opening a new market for SSJ100,” remarked SCAC president Victor Soubbotin. “It’s a real milestone for the Superjet 100 programme which is gaining pace having recently launched the full-scale certification phase. The first results of flight tests which are under way in Komsomolsk confirm designed characteristics and bring confidence that SSJ100 will be a perfect match to Kartika’s fleet.”
Kartika Airlines, an Indonesian regional airline, will employ the aircraft in both its domestic and international networks from its base at Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport and a hub in the Medan Polonia International Airport.. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2011.
The model included in the agreement is the SSJ100/95B, configured for 98 passengers in a single class layout or 86 passengers in a dual class version (78 in economy and 8 in premium).
