On November 26 and 27, PowerJet organized the first All Ops Conference for the SaM146 propulsion system in Moscow. This new annual event quickly established itself as a "can't miss" meeting for our customers.
PowerJet's support teams worked with partners SCAC (Sukhoi Civil Aircraft) and SuperJet International to bring together all customers operating the SaM146-powered Superjet 100 regional jet. This annual conference reflects the company's focus on continuous improvement, based on feedback and two-way communications with our customers.
From November 8th to 12th, a Sukhoi Superjet 100 powered by SaM146 engines was exhibited at the Dubaï airshow. The aircraft on display, with production number 95065, was manufactured for Interjet. The Mexican airline now operates 16 SSJ100 aircraft and has performed more than 37,000 flights to different cities of Latin America and USA.
Find out the SaM146 at MAKS airshow in Moscow (August 25th-30th). The engine mock-up is exhibited on UEC (United Engine Corporation) and Safran booths. Our teams are looking forward to seeing you.
On July 10, 2015 the tenth Sukhoi Superjet 100 Long Range aircraft powered by SaM146-1S18 engines was delivered to the Russian airline – Gazpromavia. In March 2014 Gazpromavia, having operated the first commercial flight from Moscow to Sovietsky in Western Siberia, became the launch operator of SSJ100 aircraft in its long range modification.
The Mexican airline Interjet has deployed its SaM146-powered Superjet 100 regional jets since 2013. PowerJet, the company responsible for engine marketing and support, assigned a permanent Field Service Engineer (FSE) to this airline, Philippe Housset, who tells us about his job.
On April 22, 2015 the 14th Superjet 100 powered by SaM146 engines arrived in Mexico to join the Interjet fleet.
The SSJ100 was rolled out from the SuperJet International’s hangar in Venice (Italy) and took off from “Marco Polo” Airport. During its ferry flight, the aircraft stopped in Keflyavik (Iceland) and Bangor (Maine, USA).
Since they entered into service with Interjet in 2013, the SaM146 engines have demonstrated an excellent dispatch reliability (99,9%) in all environments.
Interjet ordered 30 SSJ100 in the 93-seat configuration.
