Paris 2009: Sukhoi celebrates with Malev order

Superjet International chief executive Alessandro Franzoni had a big smile on his face an hour ago as we photographed him for Flight Daily News here at the show.

He was posing in front of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 in the static park shortly after signing a deal with Malev for the Hungarian carrier to take delivery of the 98-seater jet.


This is big news for Sukhoi as it seeks to establish the Russian-built aircraft in the world market.
