Officially LR version gives extra 1530 kilometers. Since the first LR started to fly commercially just three months ago, and Gazprom Avia still uses them on shorter routes (below 3000 km), we don't know how far it can go in reality. But most likely it's up to 5000 km, maybe more without full load.

cn 95088, not sure about the future operator, but the majic number 100 is getting closer and closer.

http://russianplanes.net/id144013
There's another psychological threshold coming up though. After an aircraft with cn 95076 (which is now in the final assembly line) performs its maiden flight, SSJ100 will outnumber Tu-204 which is so far the most produced Russian airliner since the fall of the Soviet Union. Yep, 76 is a lot by our standards.

Well, having 100 aircraft operating today is quite a feat indeed... I must say that Sukhoi is looking at a future where it can export its aircraft far and wide. My biggest concern, though, would be selling it to carriers other than just (mostly) Russian carriers, especially in the European Union and in the Americas... the Asian market, though, provides a great opportunity it can tap upon.

It certainly would be too optimistic to expect Sukhoi's success in Europe - let alone the US - right away.
No doubts that Asian market is of great interest, but actually they have very high hopes for Latin America too. Just 3 days ago M.Pogosyan (head of UAC) mentioned in an interview that the fact that SSJ is doing so well in Interjet appears to boost local airlines' interest in Sukhoi. I assume by that he meant that Sukhoi is scanning for new customers there.

Is the SSJ production suffering in any way from the recent EU-Russia sanctions? It is well known that many important parts and avionics are made in the EU and imported for assembly into Russia...

So far both EU and Russia have been concentrating on each other's financial and agricultural respective sectors. So no, it is not.
However potential risks do exist of course, but i'm sure tensions between EU and Russia have to be way worse than they are now for those risks to become imminent threat.

Indeed. The problem is that not only SSJ production depends on some parts made in Europe and USA, but both Boeing and Airbus depend (not so much, but significantly) on materials from Russia - i.e. titanium. So, both sides really don't want any sanctions in this area.

That is not an assembly plant on the photos you have quoted, that is the painting facility in Ulyanovsk. Sukhoi does not do painting, they outsource it to different factories, including some in EU countries.

Just wanted to ask: where is the actual production and fabrication facility for Sukhoi? Because I remember the following:

- Airbus: Toulouse and several other cities
- Boeing: outside Seattle and Charleston

And by the way, is Gazprom Avia directly controlled by the Russian gas firm? I recall hearing the name Gazprom as a Russian agency supplying oil and natural gas for European countries...

The Sukhoi Superjet is built at the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Production Association (Knaapo) in the Russian Far East.

Exactly right, it is their airline. Apart from being a corporate transport they operate commercial flights as well.

Yes - it is an Asian product.

What are the plans for cooperation with Chinese? I understand that China has an aircraft factory in Harbin - right upstream of Komsomolsk pod Amurom....

And speaking of the Chinese building their own aircraft, I wonder which among Sukhoi and the many Chinese aircraft manufacturers (especially COMAC, Shenyang Aircraft Corporation [builder of the ACAC AR21], and Xian Aircraft Industrial Corporation [builder of the Xian MA-60]) will thrive much further and develop so many aircraft to win over airlines in Asia...

@ovnours If that's the case, how will that airline be affected by the "assets freeze" imposed by many Western nations, especially that Gazprom is affected by it indirectly?

Yes, there is their main assembly plant, but like the Airbus they have quite a few other factories across the Russia making parts of planes for them.

Depends on how bad the crisis goes, so it's really hard to say now. So far they've been doing fine.
But i personally believe nothing is going to happen with it. Gazprom enjoys wide state financial and political support, and even if it goes through hard times i'm pretty sure the government will be right on cue pleasingly offering necessary billions.
