Jon Ostrower from FlightBlogger is over at the Paris Air Show and has been doing a great job covering it. Today he posted a video showing the new Sukhoi Superjet.

The Sukhoi Superjet 100 can hold 75-95 passengers and is scheduled to start deliveries in the third quarter of 2009. Armenian Armanvia will receive the first planes, followed by Aeroflot. The Flightblogger reports that there are an additional 24 orders from Avia Leasing and another 30 for Malev in Hungary. As of June 2009 there are 124 confirmed orders and an additional 99 options by 11 airlines/leasing companies.

Even though most of the attention is given to the Boeing vs Airbus battle, there are quite a few other aircraft choices out there, other than the two main players. The Airline Blog will be reporting more on other aircraft manufacturers this summer.
