Interjet, a Mexican airline received the first Superjet 100 aircraft from Rᴜssɪᴀn aircraft ᴍᴀɴufacturer Sukhoi at the Paris Airshow, the Mexican firm announced on Tuesday.

In the upcoming months, Interjet will get another 19 aircraft from Rᴜssɪᴀ’s first post-Soviet civil aircraft project. Interjet is considering going public.

Deliveries to the Mexican airliner have started, which is good news for the Superjet 100, which has been hampered by safety issues that have alarmed potential purchasers.

Investigators’ findings that a pilot error caused one of the Superjet program’s planes to crash in Iɴᴅᴏɴᴇsɪᴀ during a promotional flight last year cast doubt on the program’s future.

The event, which resulted in the ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜs of 45 people, forced Aeroflot AFLT.MM, the only airline using the plane, temporarily halt four of its ten Superjets. Kartika Airlines of Iɴᴅᴏɴᴇsɪᴀ ᴛʜʀᴇᴀᴛens to renegotiate its $900 million Superjet contract.

Sukhoi is a component of the state-owned United Aircraft Corp UNAC.MM, is a holding company that Rᴜssɪᴀn President Vladimir Putin established in 2006 in collaboration with Finmeccanica SIFI.MI of Iᴛᴀʟʏ to resurrect the nation’s aircraft industry.

Finmeccanica SIFI.MI stated on Monday that it intends to restructure its Superjet joint venture with Sukhoi but has the right to dissolve it if necessary.
