The transition to Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ) aircraft, which are produced in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, was started by Rossiya Airlines. At the first stage, the carrier plans to buy two factory liners to operate flights on new routes.

The company has placed a tender for the delivery of the first two SSJs. As follows from information on the electronic trading platform of Gazprombank, planes will be leased for 12 years. Together with maintenance, leasing will cost 3,25 billion rubles for one Superjet-100. Supplier selection will end at the end of October.

Now the company's fleet includes Airbus and Boeing aircraft, which came into the possession of "Russia" after the bankruptcy of "Transaero" in 2015. There is no Superjet-100 in the fleet yet, but by the end of the year the airline plans to receive ten airliners, which will increase the fleet to 68 vehicles. Also, by 2028, Aeroflot will transfer all Russian aircraft to Russia, including the Superjet and MC-21. 

Earlier, the Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Denis Manturov said that the SSJ-100 will join the fleets of four Russian airlines... According to him, this year they should be received by Aeroflot, Red Wings, Azimut and Yakutia.
