Yakutia Airlines adds another Superjet with a commemorative livery

Yakutsk, Russia - Siberian carrier Yakutia Airlines has taken delivery of another Sukhoi Superjet, this time with a special livery.

The livery interprets the company's usual blue and white colors on a different design pattern. A similar pattern has previously been used on the airline's first and only Bombardier Q400.

Yakutia's new Superjet SSJ100 is named after a 19th-century Vasily Manchaara who opposed the tyranny.

The aircraft with registration RA-89035 was built in 2014 and added to the inventory of the state-owned leasing company GTLK (State Transport Leasing Company).

Before Yakutia, the aircraft was operated by another Russian regional airline operator Yamal Airlines.
