Belgian airline drops Russian Sukhoi Superjets from its fleet

The Belgian air company Brussels Airlines expressed its disappointment with their Russian planes. The company leases SSJ-100 Sukhoi Superjets in a contract that expires on March 2019, but they are already replacing them with Canadian CRJ-900 Bombardier, reported the newspaper L’Echo.

According to L’Echo, the airline cancelled several flights because of operational issues with the Russian planes. The airline also complained about the lack of maintenance manuals properly translated from Russian. One of the planes has already been replaced with a Bombardier SSJ-100 while the others will be replaced as soon as possible.
