Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCA) and Irish European regional airline CityJet have signed an agreement on 15 firm orders for delivery SSJ-100 plus an option for 10 more, SCA said in a press release.
"The deal is worth more than $1 billion at the aircraft's contract price, including options and related services. The deliveries are due to begin in Q1 2016," SCA said. Four should be delivered in 2016 and the other 11 by the end of 2017.
"CityJet plans to use the SSJ-100 instead of the Avro RJ85 for flights to Europe, including London City Airport. The SSJ-100 will be certified to fly to London City by the end of 2016," SCA said.
SCA is also in talks with EgyptAir to supply an initial 12 SSJ-100 with an option for 2 more.
