Sukhoi has identified additional organisations in Russia and China which are set to participate in the maintenance network for its Superjet 100 aircraft.

It says its Superjet International affiliate, which is managing the network, last month signed a letter of intent with Volga-Dnepr's technical arm in Ulyanovsk.

Superjet International has also reached similar agreements with Ameco Beijing, as well as Russian flag-carrier and Superjet customer Aeroflot.

Authorised service centers will offer line and base maintenance services for the type as independent contractors, says Sukhoi.
