The Superjet 100 is intended to compete against the Antonov An-148, Embraer E-Jets and the Bombardier CSeries programs. Sukhoi's director general Mikhail Pogosyan claims the SSJ will have 10-15% lower operation costs than its Embraer or Bombardier counterparts and its wider cabin will offer more commfort; at the catalogue price of $27.8 mln, it should also be cheaper by 18-22%. On the other hand, both Embraer and Bombardier offer much more comprehensive after-sales and maintenance network. [4] The Antonov An-148 is a regional jet aircraft. ... The Embraer E-Jets are a series of twin-engine jet airliners, produced in Brazil. ... The Bombardier CSeries was a new family of 100-seat regional jets scheduled to enter service in 2010. ...


The three variants were originally called the RRJ-60, RRJ-75 and RRJ-95, with the numbers designating the average passenger capacity of each type. However, with the rename of the project to "Superjet 100", the RRJ-75 was renamed "Superjet 100-75" (or SSJ 100-75 for short), while the RRJ-95 became known as the "SSJ 100-95". The smallest variant was dropped completely and efforts are currently concentrating on the largest variant, with the smaller SSJ 100-75 to follow later on. A longer SSJ 100-110 is also projected, but would be limited to a maximum capacity of 110 passengers due to Sukhoi's agreement with Boeing, as any larger airplane would interfere with the US company's own product lineup.[5]


The Superjet 100 airliner family is being developed based on the principle of maximum standardization of frame assemblies and systems, viz.: wings, fins, chassis, engine unit, crew cabin, basic aeroplane systems and component parts.


The standardization of the design will make it possible to improve the economic performance of the aeroplane family operation with expenditures kept at a rational level. It is estimated that the plane will cost $25 million (USD), although the company has not disclosed the final price.


The aerodynamics and design of the aeroplanes of the family are based on proven advanced technology to minimise technical risks at the stage of design, testing and operation. To broaden the customer base among airlines, each of the 3 standard sizes of the aeroplanes of the family has a basic and a LR modification designed for use on a network of various-length routes to make it possible for airlines to improve the economic performance of their operations through a more balanced composition of their fleets based on the route structure and passenger flows.


The design meets the specific requirements of airlines in Russia, the CIS, and western countries, and conforms to the Aviation Rules AP-25, FAR-25, JAR-25 requirements, and to the ground noise level requirements under ICAO Chapter 4 and FAR 36 Section 4 standards entering into force during 2006.


On January 28, 2007 the first SSJ was transported by an Antonov 124 from Komsomolsk-on-Amur to the city of Zhukovsky near Moscow for ground tests at Zhukovsky Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute.
