PARIS — While talk swirls of new regional jet designs from other Western manufacturers, the Russian-Italian joint venture behind the newest regional jet in service has an actual product to show at the Paris Air Show.

The Superjet 100, which seats up to 108 passengers in an all-economy configuration and can fly up to 2,470 nautical miles, is 10% more efficient than other aircraft in its class available today, according to Superjet International — the joint venture formed between Russia’s Sukhoi and Italy’s Alenia Aermacchi to market the Russian-built jet in Western markets.

The aircraft is on display wearing Mexican low-cost carrier Interjet’s livery. Interjet, the Western launch customer for the Superjet 100, has 15 of the type, with 15 more on order. It flies the planes throughout its route network, including on flights between Monterrey, Mexico and Houston and San Antonio.

With 93 passengers at 32 inches seat pitch and a spacious five-abreast cabin with 18.5-inch-wide seats, the Superjet offers a roomy experience for Interjet passengers.

Here are some photos of the airplane:
