We announced it back on the day and it has finally become a reality: Irish airline CityJet has received its first Superjet.

Why is it remarkable? well, because it is Sukhoi's Superjet first foray into the Western Europe and, quite possibly, also the first significant airline order for a Russian civilian airliner from the EU ever (although not 100% about this point, any additional info about this is welcome!).

A new sight, that will surely will be awaited by planespotters at London City Airport and other destinations on CityJet's regional network.
