The SSJ100 is manufactured in the Komsomolsk-on-Amur Aircraft Plant in the far east of Russia and a range of suppliers is used (not limited to):

Initially, 3 versions were envisaged, the RRJ60, RRJ75 and RRJ95, where the 60, 75 and 85 were reflecting the estimated seating capacity. At the 2005 Farnborough Air Show, the RRJ95 development name was renamed the Sukhoi Superjet 100. That same year Aeroflot signed the first order for 30 SSJ100 aircraft,
