Sukhoi Superjet 100 will be renamed

The Russian regional aircraft Sukhoi Superjet 100, which is produced in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, got rid of the word Sukhoi in its name. This is due to undesirable associations with military aircraft, as well as with legal subtleties.

As the "Business Aviation Portal", a package of shares of the manufacturer of these aircraft, the company Sukhoi Civil Aircraft, was transferred to the Irkut Corporation. Changes occurred within the framework of the program for the creation of a civil aviation unit within the parent United Aircraft Building Corporation.

The type certificate of this aircraft will remain the original name - RRJ (Russian Regional Jet). At the same time, the changes will not prevent the sales of Superjet 100 - it has a second European customer - Slovenian Adria Ariways.
