The Sukhoi Civil Aircraft company plans to sell at least 100 SSJ 100 airliners in the near future, its chairman Boris Alyoshin told reporters at the MAKS-2015 air show in Zhukovsky this week. As well as expecting to conclude deals with the State Transport Leasing Company (GTLK) for the delivery of 25 aircraft Sukhoi is also in talks with Kazakhstan’s Scat carrier for a further 15 aircraft over the next three years.
Although the Superjet 100 was designed to compete on the international market with other twin engine jet models from Antonov Embraer and Bombardier, Sukhoi is still heavily reliant on its domestic market and on countries within Russia’s sphere of influence. 
“Russian and CIS airlines will remain our main clients. We will focus on this market,” Alyoshin said.
