Tulpar Interior Group (part of Tulpar Aero Group) has added several more components of Sukhoi Superjet 100  (SSJ100) regional jet to its capability list. The Kazan-based provider has announced that it obtained the respective EASA approval.

The audit conducted by the European authorities entitled the company to perform overhaul of the aircraft’s emergency slides, engine and APU fire bottles, oxygen bottles, crew and passenger oxygen masks, passenger seats, life jackets, ovens and coffee machines.

Tulpar Interior Group’s general director Alexander Kalachev earlier revealed that his company was intending to start servicing a wide range of components for the Russian-made airliner. He also announced plans for launching production of triple-layer honeycomb panels for SSJ100 and another Russian passenger aircraft, MC-21. The project was pumped with 200 million ruble (about $3 million) investment in 2017, and further 100 million rubles will be allocated in 2018.

Apart from the Russian regional aircraft the company provides component maintenance and repair services for Boeing 737, Bombardier CRJ100/200, Airbus 320 family and ATR 42/72 aircraft. Some of its services are unprecedented for the Russian market, such as overhaul of movable liquid fire bottles, engine and APU fire bottles, crew oxygen masks and Western-made components for general aviation aircraft, according to the company’s statement. In 2017 Tulpar Interior Group provided maintenance works on 644 components, 12% up on the previous year.
