Maintenance of 178 Superjet-100 components has already been mastered
After the introduction of large-scale sanctions against the Russian aviation industry in 2022, the operating model of Superjet-100 aircraft by Russian airlines has changed greatly: the airliners began to be used much more intensively. This intensive operation mode has been going on for more than a year, but it has not affected the serviceability of the aircraft: the regularity of Superjet-100 flights is at the level of 98%. Andrey Boginsky, General Director of Yakovlev PJSC, spoke about this.
“The joint work of Yakovlev PJSC and domestic airlines ensures a consistently high level of serviceability of Superjet-100 aircraft – in the 3rd quarter of 2023 it not only did not decrease, but even increased compared to the same period last year. At the same time, we also manage to maintain the regularity of flights at a high level – about 98%. All this indicates that through joint efforts we managed to avoid a negative scenario ,” said a top manager at the Symposium of Superjet-100 aircraft operators.
The negative scenario is, obviously, the need to ground the airliners due to a shortage of components and the impossibility of servicing the Russian-French SaM146 engines.
During the Symposium, interesting statistics were announced. So, if as of February 2022, maintenance of 59 Superjet-100 components was mastered in Russia, today maintenance of 178 such components has already been mastered, and another 226 components are planned to be replaced with Russian analogues.
