Tuesday, April 19

This is the second major protect of the “Matter of Honor” organization on preservation of the historical memory of the two peoples. The first project was the renovation of the Hill of Honor in Gyumri, military cemetery of Russian officers who perished in the Russian-Turkish wars of XIX century.

First batchj-produced Superjet 100 to be handed over to Armenian airline

19.04.2011, 07.12

YEREVAN, April 19 (Itar-Tass) - Russian aircraft manufacturing corporation Sukhoi Civilian Airlines /GSS/ is expected to hand over to the customer – the Armenian airline Armavia – the first batch-produced Sukhoi Superjet 100.

All in all, Armavia will get two Superjets.

April 12, the GSS and Armavia signed an inspection certificate for the jet, which certifies that the Superjet is being transferred to Armavia with a full package of documents and service documentation.

The airliner matches the specified operational characteristics, does not have operational limitations, has full airworthiness and is ready for an immediate release on to commercial routes, both international and domestic ones.

The Superjet is due to substitute for the old Soviet-era Tupolev-134 jets, which are still in operation.

The GSS has a confirmed portfolio of 170 orders for the Sukhoi jets. The first airworthy machine in the family was shown to the public September 26, 2007, at a factory in the Russian Far-Eastern city Komsomoslk-on-Amur and it was also there that it took off on its maiden flight May 19, 2008,

It is expected that the first Superjets will be supplied to Russia’s major line Aeroflot soon.

Along with this Russian Transport Minister Igor Levitin said last week that Aeroflot’s management is getting ready to issue sanctions against the GSS, which disrupts the deadlines for the deliveries of new jets.

He recalled that, according to initial plans, the first Sukhoi Superjets 100 were to reach Aeroflot at the end of 2010, but a delay in the obtaining of a certificate prompted the company top postpone the deadline several times.

“The delivery dates indicated in the contract have expired and now the executives are drawing up on penalties,” Levitin said. “They will first send them to the GSS board of directors and then to the government.”

He also said Aeroflot specialists had questions regarding the technical condition of the new jets.

A spokesman for Aeroflot said along with this that Superjets have been included in the airline’s summer flights schedules and the management is anxious to get them.
