Russian authorities blame sanctions for Superjet failure
The Russian Sukhoi Superjet, which is produced in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, is recognized as uncompetitive in price. The airliner depends on foreign components, while their prices are rising due to sanctions. In addition, foreign suppliers refuse to place parts manufacturing in Russia.
As reported on the air of the TV channel Russia-1 Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov, at the time of the design of the aircraft, the political situation facilitated cooperation with the West. And now, to keep the aircraft on the market, we need to do serious work on import substitution.
The last foreign airline operating Russian Sukhoi SuperJet 100 aircraft, Mexican Interjet is looking for buyers for Russian airliners. The reason is the difficult financial condition of the airline. Only six SSJ 100 from Interjet fleet continue flights, seven more do not fly for more than a year, five have been standing since last fall, three from December 2018 to January 2019 and the last from March this year.
