GSS failed to fulfill Superjet 100 annual sales plan

Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (GSS) did not fulfill the sales plan for the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) for this year. The company will not have time to sell 20 aircraft, as planned. The reason was the lack of service centers and image losses.

As the RBC, in April, it was stated that the annual supply plan for the SSJ 100, which is produced in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, was about 20-25 cars. However, later the company adjusted its plans and intended to supply 16 aircraft already. By mid-December, the company delivered only one aircraft.

In the coming days, the GSS may conclude a contract for the supply of five aircraft. The relevant information is available in the tender documentation for the SSJ 100 leasing announced by Aeroflot on December 12. The airline plans to pay about three billion rubles for each liner. According to the documents, all planes should be delivered to Aeroflot in December 2019 - January 2020.

Also, Aeroflot intends to place another tender for five aircraft in December and have time to sign a financing contract. In total, six vehicles are planned for delivery this year, the rest in 2020. Severstal should also receive one aircraft this year, but even with these deliveries, the SCAC plan will not be fulfilled.

Aeroflot Airlines may get 100 planes SSJ 100 leased for 12 years. The liners will deliver for six years until 2026. Initially, Aeroflot intended to acquire ten SSJ 100However, negotiations with the manufacturer dragged on. This was one of the reasons for the drop in sales of Sukhoi Superjet.

Previously Sukhoi Superjet recognized uncompetitive for the price. The airliner depends on foreign components, while their prices are rising due to sanctions. In addition, foreign suppliers refuse to place parts manufacturing in Russia.
