Russia’s State Transport Leasing Co. (STLC) has signed letters of intent (LOI) with Mirny-based Alrosa Airline and RusLine regional airline to lease two Sukhoi Superjet 100s (SSJ100s) to each carrier for 12-years.

The agreements were announced at Transport Week in Moscow Nov. 20. Delivery dates were not disclosed.

STLC also signed a LOI with SKOL Airline for three Let L-410s, 11 Mil Mi-8s and four Ansat helicopters.

STLC began leasing the SSJ100 in 2015. According to a statement, to date the lessor has delivered 36 out of 44 aircraft ordered from manufacturer.

In October, the Russian government announced it would provide a subsidy to the company.

In September, STLC introduced an IT system allowing the lessor to monitor its fleet online, initially with SSJ100 operators.
