IrAero-based Irkutsk airline sent a claim to Sukhoi Civil Aircraft JSC (GSS) claiming compensation for losses in the amount of 1,9 billion rubles due to the operation of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) airliner since 2016, according to the next published issue of the EastRussia Newsletter.

The claim is related to the unsatisfactory technical condition of the SSJ 100 assembled at the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aviation Plant. There are nine such airliners in the airline’s fleet, but only five are serviceable. One of their aircraft has been idle for three years and is used as a spare parts donor.

Nine airplanes were leased by the company from the State Transport Leasing Company, while four were new, and the rest were previously operated by the Red Wings and Yamal air carriers. If the claim is not satisfied, IrAero plans to file a lawsuit with the SCAC in an arbitration court.
