The Russian airline Rossiya has now confirmed it is completely ready to operate flights on Sukhoi Superjet SSJ100, which is the latest addition to the fleet from parent airline Aeroflot.

The start of operations of Superjet SSJ100 is part of a major new strategy of The Aeroflot Group, which according to Rossiya, will see the carrier focus on the implementation of mainline and regional air transportation within Russia.  Its main function will be to provide convenient connections, both with its own flights and with Aeroflot flights at new base of  Sheremetyevo International Airport.

It is this new strategy that will see the vast bulk of Aeroflot's SSJ100s passed to Rossiya, which should see around 66 of the jets eventually fly in Rossiya's colours by the end of 2021.   

Nizhny Novgorod and Belgorod will be the first destinations in Rossiya’s route network, which will begin to operate flights on Superjet 100 from 1st January.

This week has been a major milestone for both Aeroflot and for the United Aircraft Corporation as the 50th Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) is delivered to the leading Russian airline.

The official presentation of the new aircraft took place on Tuesday, at Sheremetyevo airport, with senior management from both Aeroflot and United Aircraft Corporation present.

Vitaly Saveliev, CEO of Aeroflot, said, “Aeroflot is pleased to welcome its 50th Superjet 100. Earlier this month, at the Eastern Economic Forum, we signed a major aircraft delivery agreement to receive 100 more modern Russian-built SSJ100 aircraft, with President Putin present for the signing ceremony. This agreement will bring the total number of Russian-built aircraft in Aeroflot’s fleet to 200, 50 of which will be the innovative MC-21."
