Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCAC) identified its first potential customer in Southeast Asia last month when it announced an agreement with Indonesia’s Kartika Airlines covering a firm order for 15 Sukhoi Superjet 100s and options on another 15. The SSJ100/95Bs under consideration would carry either 98 passengers in a single-class configuration or 86 passengers in a dual-class configuration. Kartika, which flies among eight cities in Indonesia and Malaysia, plans to take its first SSJ100 in 2011.
