MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) – Mexican carrier Interjet has approved the purchase of ten more Russian-made Sukhoi Superjet-100 (SSJ-100) planes, the company’s CEO Jose Luis Garza Alvarez has told RIA Novosti.

“The decision was made by the company’s board of directors,” Garza said Friday, adding that next week he will be travelling to Venice, where the official ceremony on the signing of all relevant documents on the delivery of ten SSJ-100 planes will take place.

The order comes in addition to the previous one, which stipulates the delivery of 20 SSJ-100 planes to the Mexican carrier.

Interjet has received 12 of the 20 earlier-purchased SSJ-100 planes with the last aircraft having been delivered in December of last year. The delivery of eight remaining planes is expected to be completed by July, 2015.

Superjet-100 is a short-haul passenger airliner, developed by Russia’s Sukhoi Company. The plane carried out its maiden flight in May, 2008 and was made available for commercial use in 2011.

Russia’s flag-carrier Aeroflot operates the largest fleet of SSJ-100s. Apart from Russian and Mexican airlines, the plane is also used by Laotian and Indonesian airlines.
