Sukhoi has started a project on building a larger version of the super-jet 100. There hasn’t been much marketing on the new jet but the designs have been clearly made and clearly show that the new super jet is going to seat from 20 to 120 extra seats per jet. Nazario Cauceglia, the CEO of super Jet International has stated the new design of the Sukhoi 120 seat superjet is not going to the narrow plane market. Also, Sukhoi SSJ100 had two different versions where two different types of the winglets used on their aircraft, one was set at 1,500 nm and the other was set at 2,400 nm. However, the first prototype of the Sukhoi 120 seat superjet is going to have a 2,000 nm range.
Cauceglia has stated that redesigning the SSJ100 is going to cost a lot of money, which is why the new design of the 120 seat superjet is not going to be far from the SSJ100. The weight of the 120SSJ is going to increase significantly due to the increase in size. The CEO of PowerJet has stated that PowerJet SaM146 turbofan powerplant is not going to change at all, it’s enough to thrust at 2.5% more than the original version.
Two customers who have agreed to be part of the SSJ100 promotion, Ireland’s CityJet and Mexico’s Interjet, have favored Sukhoi civil aircraft, the SuperJet 100, over the airbus A320 and they don’t feel like they are ready to jump into the 120 Seat SuperJet. The crews that utilizes the SSJ100 have showed more interest and said that the superjet has a slight edge over the technology in the aircraft over the Airbus A320.
