Four Superjet 100 delivered in 2013 to Indonesian and Laos carriers, will return to Russia, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCAC) spokesperson told Russian Aviation Insider. Indonesian Sky Aviation and Laos Lao Central stopped operations in 2014 and 2013, accordingly.

All four aircraft (tail numbers PK-ECL, PK-ECM, PK-ECN and RDPL-34195) are currently undergoing inspections and refurbishment and may be offered to other potential customers, SCAC’s spokesperson explained.

Sky Aviation’s order initially included 12 SSJ100s. The airline left the market shortly after receiving the first three aircraft. Lao Central ordered three and received one before its operations were suspended. Two more aircraft intended for the carrier entered service with the state-owned Rossiya special flight department, which carries Russia’s high-rank officials. In the meanwhile Laos airline announced its plans to resume operations by mid-2015. SCAC representative confirmed that the carrier is negotiating a contract for four Superjet 100s.
