Azimuth gets final Superjet 100
On April 18 Russian start-up carrier Azimuth Airlines took delivery of its eighth Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) from State Transport Leasing Corporation (GTLK). This aircraft with tail number RA-89095 became the final one delivered under contract with GTLK, the SSJ 100 manufacturer Sukhoi Civil Aircraft reported.
The Rostov-based airline signed the contract for eight SSJ 100s in 2017. The first four aircraft were delivered the same year, and the remaining four joined the airline’s fleet in March and April this year. Azimuth also hold an option for further four aircraft to be delivered through 2020.
Azimuth Airlines is so far the only world’s all-SSJ 100 airline. Its fleet includes aircraft with seating capacity for 100 and 103 passengers in single class cabin configuration. The 100-seat version can be transformed into a two-class cabin configuration with the total of 93 seats.
Since the launch of its operations in September 2017 Azimuth’s fleet has logged the total of 5,100 hours, and carried 182,663 passengers. The airline has recently completed its first C-check on a SSJ 100 at the maintenance station of S7 Technics in Moscow’s Domodedovo.
