(NSI News Source Info) MOSCOW, Russia - July 16, 2010: The Russian Sukhoi Aircraft Design Bureau plans to conclude a contract with a South-East Asian air company on the delivery of 30 Sukhoi Superjet 100s at the U.K. Farnborough Air Show (FIA), the bureau's press service said on Thursday.
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.
Specific details of the potential deal have not been released.
FIA, one of the most preeminent global aviation events, will be held from July 19 - 25 this year near London. The first five days of the show will be dedicated to concluding deals and the exhibition will then be open to the public over the weekend.
Mikhail Pogosyan, head of the Sukhoi and MiG corporation, said the air show would reassure the global aviation community that the Russian airliners meet global requirements and show potential buyers that the company has the potential to implement the project successfully.
Russia will also showcase its Su-35 Flanker and MiG-35 Fulcrum-F multirole fighters, as well as the Su-32 fighter-bomber (an export version of the Su-34 Fullback aircraft in service with the Russian Air Force) and MiG-29 Fulcrum combat aircraft.
