CityJet has confirmed today the acquisition of 15 SuperJet SSj100, with delivery dates set for next year. The airline has agreed to take four aircraft in 2016 with the delivery of  11 throughout 2017, plus ten additional aircraft intended to replace the aging Avro Systems RJ85 in service with the Dublin-based carrier.

“This is a very versatile new generation jet which will fulfil our requirements with a capability to operate at smaller airports such as our hub at London City Airport and offer significant advantages in fuel efficiency, emissions ratings and noise reduction" said CityJet Executive Chairman Pat Byrne. The airline has selected the cabin designed by Pininfarina, in a 98-seat cabin configuration and a 32″ seat pitch in a 3+2 seating arrangement.

"We intend introducing the SSJ100 on charter activity in 2016 and will place it on our London City route network in 2017. We believe our customers will love this jet," Byrne added.

CityJet becomes the third Western customer in placing orders for the SSJ100 after Mexican budget carrier Interjet and Belgian carrier VLM. Superjet International (SJI) is a joint venture between Alenia Aermacchi, part of the Finmeccanica Group of Italy and the Russian Sukhoi corporation.
