"The tail number of the jet is RA-89017 and it has been named after Honored Pilot of the USSR, Aeroflot veteran Pyotr Georgiyevich Khmelnitsky," the Sukhoi press office said in a statement obtained by Interfax-AVN on Tuesday.
According to the information of the press office, Sukhoi Superjet 100 is ready to carry out commercial domestic and international flights under the Aeroflot schedule.
It has been reported that the Sukhoi company started changing the SSJ100 used by Aeroflot in the light specification to the full one. In late May Aeroflot was supplied with the first jet characterized by the full specification.
The full specification has a renewed flight management system and a weather radar with the function of determining changes in the wind. The aircraft is also equipped with three bathrooms with diaper boards and an individual air system and the number of oxygen masks was increased.
The jet that was taken out of operation will be given to other customers.
In 2013-2014 Sukhoi will change the first ten aircraft supplied to Aeroflot in the light specification.
Aeroflot has ordered 30 Sukhoi Superjet 100 planes and as of now ten aircraft have been supplied.
According to the information of the Sukhoi company, Aeroflot uses Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft on flights to Russian cities, Germany, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine and Belarus.
