JSC Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCAC), SuperJet International (SJI) and the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) signed a contract for the delivery of another Sukhoi Business Jet (SBJ). This will be the third SBJ to join RTAF’s fleet in 2018.
The cooperation between SCAC and RTAF began in September 2014. RTAF received two SBJ under the previous contract in July 2016. The previous SBJs for RTAF fleet have three areas: a four-seat VIP area, six-seat business area, and standard area accommodating 50 passengers.
The third aircraft will be delivered in a two-cabin layout with a common zone for VIP and business class. It will have greater capacity – up to 73 passengers, including four VIPs. It will be equipped with various types of communication systems and a multimedia IFE system.
The SBJ, including its interior, is built and assembled at a production plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Russia. SCAC will also provide aftersales support on-site in Thailand. Crew training will be held at SuperJet International’s training center in Venice, Italy.
