The Laos department of civil aviation has validated the type certificate for the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100).

The validation clears the way for Lao Central Airlines to take delivery of the three SSJ100s it has on order, with the first aircraft due to be delivered in early 2013.

The SSJ100 received Russian type certification in January 2011 and European Aviation Safety Agency certification in February 2012. It has since been validated by airworthiness authorities in Mexico and Indonesia.
