June 24 2011, Paris Le Bourget

SuperJet International – a joint venture between Alenia Aeronautica (a Finmeccanica Company) and
Sukhoi Holding – announced today the execution of a “SuperCare” Agreement with the launch customer
Armavia for after-sales support of its SSJ100 fleet of 2 aircraft.

The agreement was announced at the Le Bourget International Airshow by Mr. Carlo Logli, Chief
Executive Officer of SuperJet International, and Mr Norayr Shakratovich Belluyan, General Director of

SuperJet International will provide the Armenian carrier Armavia with customized spares availability and
maintenance/repair solutions of on-board equipments for an initial term of 6 years. The agreement is
worth about USD 4 million.

The “SuperCare” agreement is a comprehensive “per-flight-hour” program developed by SJI with the aim
of maximizing aircraft availability to operators and optimizing their maintenance and associated
administrative costs.

“It is an important milestone which confirms the SuperJet international’s fundamental commitment and
role in the SSJ100 Program – states Mr. Carlo Logli, Chief Executive Officer of SuperJet International –
Since the SSJ100 entry into service, we have been committed to ensuring the maximum level of aftersales
performance and aircraft availability.

A similar “SuperCare” agreement was also signed in January 2011 with the Mexican airline Interjet, along
with the order of 15 aircraft plus 5 options – continued Mr. Logli – thus showing the added value of such
an integrated lifecycle solution specifically designed for our valuable SSJ100 operators.

“We are very proud to work with SuperJet International, by joining its “SuperCare” Plan. We deem it is the
right solution to boost our aircraft availability while minimizing costs and keeping full budget control
through a fixed rate per flight hour“ states Mr Norayr Shakratovich Belluyan, General Director of Armavia.

The 2 plus 3 Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft’s order with Armavia was finalized by SCAC (Sukhoi Civil
Aircraft Company). SuperJet International, which is responsible for worldwide after-sales support for
SSJ100 aircraft, will carry out maintenance and technical support not only to Western Customers, but
also to SCAC’s Customers.

In this perspective, SuperJet International is currently providing Armavia with Flight Crew, Cabin Crew
and Maintenance staff training courses, along with on-site support.

The first Sukhoi Superjet 100 entered into revenue services with Armavia on April 21, 2011. The aircraft
was put into operation in an extremely short period of time, two days after the official delivery to the
launch customer on April, 19 2011. On June 16, 2011 the SSJ100 entered into commercial operation with
the Russian airline Aeroflot from Moscow to St. Petersburg.

The first SSJ100 had 98% dispatch reliability in the first month of operation, confirming its great
performances and operational capabilities. So far the SSJ100 totalized 120 flights and more than 269
