Russia's Sukhoi Civil Aircraft and Indonesia's regional carrier Kartika Airlines on Monday inked a $951 million contract for the delivery of 30 Sukhoi Superjet 100s.
The contract is a solid order for 30 airplanes to be shipped between 2012 and 2015.
Superjet-100 is a family of medium-haul passenger aircraft developed by Sukhoi in cooperation with U.S. and European aviation corporations, including Boeing, Snecma, Thales, Messier Dowty, Liebherr Aerospace and Honeywell.
Kartika Airlines CEO Kim J. Mulia said SSJ100 would help fill a "regional niche" on Indonesia's carrier market because most national airlines were focused on larger-capacity aircraft.
He added that SSJ100 would open opportunities for new routes and effective operation on point-to-point medium-haul routes with optimal passenger traffic.

Europe is not an alien civilization to Putin. If the Russian world wins, the European family would likely offer a place – possibly the pride of place – to a new and better Russia, with its large population consisting of many ethnic groups. By incorporating Crimea, Russia has not left Europe but has re-entered it after 20 years of living in isolation.
