When CityJet ordered Sukhoi Superjets it made headlines, since, for historical reasons, Western airlines had traditionally been out of bounds for the Russian commercial aircraft industry.

t has not taken long for the Superjet to add another EU airline livery, this time Brussels Airlines.

ell, in reality, this is a side-effect of the CityJet order, since the Brussels Airlines Superjet SSJ100 is, in fact, on wet lease from the Irish carrier.

Nevertheless it makes for a rather fresh and interesting sight - including this video showing the Brussels Airlines livery painting process!
