Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (Zhukovsky) has won a tender from the Royal Thai Air Force (Bangkok Don Mueang) for the supply of three SSJ 100/95s in VIP configuration.

Russian trade representative to Thailand Oleg Maslennikov told the TASS newswire that the aircraft will be used by the Thai Royal family with requisite contracts having already been signed.

The first of the twinjets is scheduled to be delivered in late 2016.

The sale is the latest in a series of deals the aircraft, a joint venture between the Russians and Italy's Alenia Aermacchi, has secured in Asia. Earlier this year, Moscow announced it was close to finalizing sales in Indonesia, Laos, and Vietnam.
