TWO SUKHOI SuperJet 100-95LR aircraft in VIP configuration were handed over to the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) during an official ceremony at SuperJet International’s base in Venice, Italy, on July 15.

They are are scheduled to enter service within the next two months and will be used to transport the country’s leaders, senior officials and high-ranking armed forces personnel.
Each aircraft is configured with a four-passenger VIP area, six-passenger business class section and a 50-passenger standard seating cabin.  As previously reported on AFD, a deal for three of these aircraft (two plus one option) was announced on December 9, 2014, although the contract had been signed much earlier, in 2013.
The first aircraft, /L.19-1/59/60317 (c/n 95093), made its maiden flight with test registration ‘97015’ on October 23 last year at Komsomolsk-on-Amur/Dzyemgi, where it was built on the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Production Association (KnAAPO) production line.  It was ferried the next day via Novosibirsk to Ulyanovsk, where it was painted by Spektr-Avia in full RTAF colours, then departed on November 9 for Zhukovsky, where final acceptance testing was completed.  Following this, it had been undergoing outfitting with its VIP cabin.
