The Sukhoi Superjet 100 will not be delivered to launch customer Aeroflot until the second half of 2009, a year behind schedule, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Co. and the Russian airline revealed this week.

 

A Sukhoi spokesperson confirmed the delay to Agence France Presse. Lev Koshlyakov, Aeroflot's deputy head, told Reuters that Sukhoi had informed it via a letter not to expect any SSJ100s until the 2009 third quarter. The carrier had expected to take delivery of as many as 30 in the second half of this year.

 

The SSJ100 made its first test flight last month (ATWOnline, May 20), but Sukhoi does not expect certification to be completed until mid-2009. Delivery delays had been hinted at since March (ATWOnline, March 25), but it had not been known until this week that the delay would be as long as one year.

 

Russian media have reported that the government is considering pumping more money into the SSJ100 program.

Se na época tivesse encomendado E-Jet, já estaria com ele na frota.

 

E o E-190 ficaria lindo nas cores da Aeroflot!

Devido a esse atraso a Aeroflot já poderia cobrar multas à Sukhoi no valor de 45 milhões de dólares ou mesmo romper o contrato de compra.
