The aircraft manufactured by the company “Sukhoi Civil Aircraft” purposed for the company “Yamal Airlines” arrived to the airport of the regional center on the 28th of March.
The aircraft and the crew of “Sukhoi Superjet 100” were welcomed on the runway by the governor of Yamal Dmitriy Kobylkin and the director general of the company “Yamal Airlines” Vasiliy Kryuk.
As Dmitriy Kobylkin notes, gradually “Boeings” being used in the park of the airline company will be replaced. In total it is planned to purchase 25 aircrafts, till the end of this year it is planned to receive 7. According to the words of the governor, the region would like to transfer international flights on to these aircrafts in the prospect, but now they will fly inside Russia. The aircraft was inspected in an air salon in Moscow; some improvements were made in connection with specifics of the northern direction, as the governor says.
The symbol of the arctic region was used at decoration of the aircraft – the polar bear on the scarlet background.
As we should note, domestic aircrafts are received in Yamal in leasing on privilege conditions and in ruble equivalent. It means that abrupt changes in the world economy will not influence on a financial component of expenditures of the airline company. From the economic position providing of the air park of the regional company with domestic air liners will cost two times cheaper. According to the words of Dmitriy Kobylkin, an engine is the most expensive part of aircrafts. There are foreign details in the aircraft “Sukhoi Superjet 100”, but engines are of joint production — France and Russia. They are made in the town Perm, and in the prospect, as he thinks, next year on 70-80% they will be made of Russian materials.
“Sukhoi Superjet 100” is a Russian short-haul passenger aircraft designed by the company “Sukhoi Civil Aircraft”. The maximum passenger capacity makes 103 seats. In spite of the title “regional” the version Long Range (SSJ 100 LR) has the length of a flight more than 4000 kilometers. For its speed category “C” (cruising speed is 830 km/h, the maximum – 860 km/h) the aircraft can land on a rather short runway – 1700 meters. At the present time, according to technical parameters, majority of all 158 airports of Russia are able to take this kind of aircrafts, as it is informed in the press-service of the governor of Yamal.
