Instead, it is a passport to Company’s sustainability in the market today and growth in the future – when the economic recovery will start gaining momentum. Our aircraft is now running a vigorous certification campaign, and the results obtained so far give us confidence in the fact that Sukhoi Superjet 100 will become an essential tool for efficiency boost and a long-term liquid asset for a leasing company”, said Victor Soubbotin during the signing ceremony.
