Thailand’s startup airline Kom Airlines has firmed an order for six SSJ100 regional jets from Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Co. (SCAC). The airline signed an LOI for the aircraft in late December 2018.

All six aircraft, in a single-class 100-seat configuration, will be delivered in the 2019-2020 timeframe, with the first arriving in the fall. SCAC said that total value of the contract at list prices is about $300 million. 

Kom Airlines plans to operate the aircraft on both domestic and international routes.

Maintenance of the aircraft will be carried out by WishV, a maintenance and repair organization registered in Thailand. 

The Royal Thai Air Force operates three business versions of the SSJ100.
