PARIS, 22 June 2011. Russian airline and aviation services company UTair Aviation in Khanty Mansiysk, Russia, will buy seven Boeing 737-900ER and 33 737-800 medium-range passenger jetliners, officials of the Boeing Co. Commercial Airplanes segment in Seattle announced Wednesday morning at the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget, France. The latest aircraft order, by rough count, brings Boeing's total aircraft sales at the 2011 show to 142 -- 45 of them widebodies. The UTair deal is Boeing's first of the day, with more sales expected later.

UTair has a fleet of more than 30 Boeing aircraft, company officials say. The airline is among the top four passenger carriers in the Commonwealth of Independent States and the Baltic States. UTair this summer will make more than 300 passenger flights per day.

Boeing sold about 20 passenger aircraft Tuesday at the Paris Air Show, 82 on Monday, and 40 so far today.
