The Cityjet Sukhoi Superjet (SSJ100) will start operating for Brussels Airlines as from the 26th of March, website airlineroute confirmed today.
Luchtzak forum Member crew1990 added in the Brussels Airlines forum topic that the following destinations are scheduled with the Sukhoi Superjet:
- Berlin (first flight of the day)
- Basel (afternoon flight)
- Geneva (last flight of the day)
- Vienna (first flight of the day)
- Milan Linate & Malpensa
The first scheduled commercial flight is SN3615 to Nice on 26 March at 06:00 (source: Brussels Airlines’ booking engine, subject to change).
It is striking that the largest Avro RJ100 destination, Stockholm Bromma, which cannot be served by A320 family aircraft, is not on the list of Sukhoi destinations. Brussels Airlines probably waits for the SSJ100 to be approved for that airfield (the current status of the approval is unclear). That means that Bromma will probably be the last destination served by Brussels Airlines’ Avro RJ100 aircraft before the type is retired in November 2017. If the SSJ100 is not approved, the Swedish capital might be served by Flybe’s Q400, else Brussels Airlines might switch airports from close-by Bromma to further-away Arlanda.
