A set of activities aimed at the development of Sukhoi Superjet 100 operational leasing carried out in close cooperation with JSC Sukhoi Civil Aircraft. Budgetary and non-budgetary sources of funding are used for its realization.
The demand for domestic aircraft from airlines on the terms offered by STLC is at a high level. Preliminary contracts for the supply of 110 units of Sukhoi Superjet 100 for Russian regional carriers are currently signed with STLC. Main supplies under these contracts will be provided in 2016-2018. Implementing measures for the development of SSJ100 operational leasing will expand and upgrade fleet of Russian regional carriers, attract extra-budgetary sources in the domestic aircraft industry, reduce the investment burden and currency risks of Sukhoi Superjet 100 airline operators by setting rental rates in Russian rubles, stimulate import substitution and feed-out of foreign manufactured aircraft from flying stock with their replacement by aircraft of domestic production. Update of aircraft fleet with modern technology, in turn, will lead to increased transport safety of passenger traffic, reducing the risks of accidents and improve the quality of transport services.
