Interjet SSJ. How Do They Work?

Fri Sep 27, 2013 6:41 pm

I think Interjet's SSJ first revenue flights were expected to start a few weeks ago and I had no informations about a cancellation of these flights.
So, I suppose, they have started.
I'm a little be surprised no one has posted a report about these firsts weeks of operation.
Is the aircraft working as expected?
Some flights reports?
Thanks for sharing some news about it.

Another interesting question, are the SSJs certified for use in the USA? I had actually never heard if they were, but the SSJ did visit SFO on a promo tour. I hope it is certified for the US, because it is such a nice-lookin plane. Much better than the other jets from that region (I'm sorry, but Antonovs and Illyushins are not the best lookers).

Interjet first two SSJ100 started revenue service last Sep 18th. See this news release:


First two Sukhoi Superjet 100s enter in service with Mexican airline Interjet

September 18, 2013 – Mexico City

The first two Sukhoi Superjet 100 operated by the Mexican airline Interjet successfully performed the first revenue flights on September 18, 2013.

The aircraft MSN 95023 (flight 3150) took off at approximately 7.37 (local time) from Mexico City airport (MEX) and landed at 8.54 a.m. at Torreon airport (TRC).

The second aircraft MSN 95024 (flight 3963) took off at about 7.50 a.m. (local time) from Mexico City airport (MEX) and landed at 8.52 a.m. at Aguascalientes (AGU) airport.

On the first day of their operations, the first two Interjet SSJ100s will perform (performed) 8 commercial flights each from Mexico City airport to other Mexican destinations as Campeche, Minatitlan, Zacatecas and Mazatlán.

“The SSJ100 is now flying also in the Americas. The entry in service with Interjet has opened the door to the Western market and the international aviation community has been carefully watching at this major step – states Nazario Cauceglia, Chief Executive Officer of SuperJet International...

The SSJ100 entry into service was introduced by a successful flight training campaign in “high altitude environment” typical of Mexico, supported by a risk assessment evaluation. Training flights, which were accomplished in Toluca after the completion of the Type Rating courses at the Venice SJI training center, included 171 “touch & go” for roughly 35 flight hours confirming the aircraft’s high-quality performance. Up to date SuperJet International, which is also the SSJ100 worldwide training provider, has trained 44 Interjet pilots, including 5 Interjet instructors, along with 8 cabin attendants and almost

Additionally, chief executive José L. Garza told reporters the SSJ had performed 250 take offs and landings succesfully during a 25 day test period:

Interjet to begin Superjet revenue flights in weeks

"It was much better than expected" he added.

I spotted the aircraft on approach last week and I can tell this is a nice looking aircraft.

I was just wondering today if they would sub it for the A320 if loads were thin to SNA.

It technically doesn't need to be for Interjet to fly them to the USA   As per ICAO treaties, if Mexico regards it as airworthy (and the aircraft is on the XA- registry), then it is legal to fly to and from the USA on flights originating in Mexico. Although, it will have to have been certified for things like RVSM airspace, etc. But I know it is cerified under European JAR's and has a European airworthiness certificate. I do believe they also have an FAA type certificate as well.

I hope so! I would love to see it at SNA! Maybe they could start some new routes from SNA. Maybe TIJ-SNA? SJD-SNA? Maybe CUN-SNA with the A320?

I would expect them to send the SSJ to CUN maybe sometime next year. CUN is not a big operation for Interjet. They only operate to MEX, MTY and TLC from CUN.

They need to get slots to operate any of those routes which are hard to come by at SNA.

Absolutely not.

The SSJ is not noise or operator certified at SNA.

Yes, it is true that it is certified by EASA under the CS codes. JARs were issued by the JAA and have not been used for new types since October 2003.

I don't think the FAA have yet issued a TC - there would be no point, since there are no US customers.

4O has 3 slots at SNA but only uses 2 of them.

Quoting LAXintl (Reply 11):

Not yet, it doesn't take much! 4O would need to run some test flights out to SNA. I could see this plane serving SNA in the future.

Seems the SSJ can finally do a good showing, here a tweet from yesterday:

Didn't boeing played a role in the SSJ ? 

And 12.4 h a day ...

On a site that tracks SSJ flight, i've got 140 flight in 21 days for both and 9h20 of flight a day (very close to Ryan Air 2010 average flight utilization)

Excellent, why is there not news about this, nothing on the normal tweets, FlightGlobal or AW?? I love Russia and China to mix in and have success. The more interleaved national pride business we have the more the world is a safe place for all.

WOW!WOW!

An interesting article I found:

Aeroflot stated in an internal presentation in January that its SSJ 100s were involved in 24 technical mishaps in 2012. The aircraft was therefore responsible for 40% of the total technical incidents for Aeroflot’s fleet of 125 aircraft during this period. Most common were problems with the SSJ 100’s air conditioning system. Other issues that cropped up frequently affected the aircraft’s flight controls, landing gear, fire protection system and engines. Aeroflot’s SSJ 100s have logged a total of 17,313 flight hours or 9,186 flights
