Based on the aircraft list price, the value of the 20 aircraft order is approximately US$700m. Interjet’s first SSJ100 will arrive in Venice (Italy) at SuperJet International’s Headquarters in August 2012. The aircraft will be completed, customized and delivered by the end of the year at the SJI completion center in Venice. SJI is developing the EASA STC for the interiors’ installation, which will be marked by Pininfarina Italian Style.
