Formed in July 2007 and based in Tessera, Venice, SuperJet International is responsible for marketing, sales, customization, and delivery of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) in Europe, the Americas, and other markets such as Oceania, Africa, and Japan. The company is also in charge of training and worldwide after-sales support, as well as the design and development of the Sukhoi Business Jet and cargo variant.

SJI established a branch in Moscow for logistical and technical support, training courses, and commercial services. An additional sales-office was placed in Washington, D.C., US, in order to cover the North American market. Several more offices will be opened in due course in other markets.

In May 2022, Italy's police froze assets of 146 million euros ($153 million) owned by SuperJet International due to EU sanctions against Russia following its invasion of Ukraine.[3]

In March 2023, a possible deal was announced that would see UAC sell its stake in SuperJet International to an Emirati investment fund, Markab Capital Investments. A new factory would be built at Al Ain International Airport, Abu Dhabi, where aircraft would be assembled before completion at SJI's Venice site. The deal would be conditional on SJI's assets being unfrozen by the European Union.[4] It is unclear how Russian production of the SSJ-New would be affected by the deal, or how the new owners would establish a supply chain for the aircraft.[5]
