When Are Malév's SSJ100's Due?

Wed Oct 05, 2011 2:24 am

Hello A.netters!

After doing some research I could not find the answer to my question.

When is MA supposed to begin accepting deliveries of its 15 ordered (+ 15 options) SSJ100s? Some articles say 2011 and some say 2012... maybe someone from the BUD area can shed some light?   

Also I hope someone can give some insight or at least make a guess as to:

What routes will the SSJ100s be used on?
Does the financial situation of MA allow it to accept new planes?
Will the EU lawsuit against MA affect this order in any way?



[I looked up this topic in the forum search but I couldn't find anything so if this is a re-post please delete. Thanks   ]

There is a Serbian aviation blog, I am not a fan of it, but it reported that Malev is supposed to receive their first Sukhoi jet by the end of the year.

Link in Serbian, sorry:

I hope that someone else can give you some more concrete information.

To me it is virtually a dead order. We have seen many previous old agreements being firmed up, support contracts signed, etc, but have heard nothing about the Malev order for 2 years. IMO it was a "political" order from the previous MA management and I doubt that it will be fulfilled. I'd hope to be proven wrong, however.

Those SSJs are never going to happen. The order - which was never firmed up - is effectively dead, Malev can't afford to buy new aircraft and it's still waiting to see whether the European Commission is going to order a repayment of public funds to the Hungarian government. The potential sum is huge, which means Malev's entire future is in question. Never mind the SSJ pipe dream, the real issue is whether there'll even be an airline.
