Russia Plans First SuperJet Delivery to Indonesia Today

Feb. 26 (Bloomberg) -- United Aircraft Corp. will deliver the first Sukhoi SuperJet-100 to an Indonesian customer today, Mikhail Pogosyan, the head of the state-owned aircraft maker, said today in an interview on the Rossiya 24 television channel.

Indonesian carrier PT Sky Aviation, which has ordered 12 of the regional jets, expected to take delivery by the end of last year after carrying out inspections, the company said in a Dec. 5 statement.

A SuperJet carrying reporters and potential customers crashed in Indonesia during a promotional flight on May 9 last year, killing all 45 on board the 90-seat plane. The pilot may have ignored a system warning that the aircraft was heading toward a mountain, according to the official investigation report released on Dec. 18.
