The Ministry of Industry and Trade plans to introduce direct compensation for the payment of lease payments to airlines using the new SuperJets, according to the next published issue of the EastRussia bulletin.

It is assumed that for each flight hour of SSJ 100 airlines that have leased new aircraft will receive 2020 thousand rubles in 37,5, and the same amount for each flight hour above the minimum flight time of 60 hours per month from 2021. In this case, the subsidies, according to preliminary calculations, will not exceed 200 million rubles per year, since the average level of flight time for aircraft operators is 8-9 hours a day. The Ministry of Industry and Trade explains the need for such a subsidy by bringing the cost of maintaining the airworthiness of SSJ 100 to the level of foreign counterparts ($ 1 per flight hour versus $ 350 per hour).

In addition, air carriers are expected to provide 333,28 million rubles for each aircraft delivered under a financial lease, and 139,98 million rubles for an aircraft purchased under an operating lease.

However, industry experts note that while the proposed subsidies make it profitable to purchase new SSJ 100s, they do not solve the problem of selling these aircraft on the secondary market, since subsidies do not apply to used aircraft.
