Sukhoi succeeds at Farnborough
The Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 has exceeded expectations with sales in the first three days of the Farnborough International Airshow, near London. While Monday’s US$ 951 million contract with Indonesian domestic carrier Kartika Airlines had been widely expected, but never-the-less was hailed as a breakthrough order for 30 aircraft and other orders have followed. Kartika will receive the aircraft between 2012 to 2015.
