Indonesia's Sky Aviation has taken delivery of its second Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft, from a dozen the airline has on order.

The aircraft, serial number 95027, was handed over to the carrier on 20 August following completion of technical acceptance procedures.

Sukhoi's civil aircraft division says Sky Aviation's first Superjet, delivered towards the end of last year, has logged over 500h operating domestic services.

It says the additional aircraft will be used to connect island destinations including Pontianak, Palembang and Natuna Ranai on the Jakarta-based airline's network.

Sukhoi is also preparing to deliver the first Superjet to Russian operator Gazpromavia, having painted the aircraft in the energy company's corporate livery.
