Kartika Airlines and Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company signed an USD951 million agreement covering the delivery of 30 Superjet 100 aircraft between 2012 and 2015 (Reuters/RIA Novosti/Irish Sun, 19-Jul-2010). Kartika Airlines CEO, Kim J Mulia, stated the aircraft would help fill a "regional niche" in the Indonesian market, with the aircraft to open opportunities for new routes and effective operation on point-to-point medium-haul routes with optimal passenger traffic. Meanwhile, Kartika Airlines and PowerJet, a JV between Snecma (Safran Group) and NPO Saturn, signed (19-Jul-2010) a SaM146 customer support agreement, following the order. With this agreement, the Indonesian carrier becomes the launch customer for the new regional aircraft in Southeast Asia. [more]
