(ANSA) - Rome, November 27 - Indonesian airline Lion Air signed a one-billion-euro contract Thursday with Finmeccanica subsidiary Alenia Aermacchi and French manufacturer Airbus SAS to buy 40 planes from their jointly owned subsidiary, ATR. The biggest ATR commission in 20 years was signed in Rome in the presence of Premier Matteo Renzi and Finmeccanica CEO Mauro Moretti. The deal "continues the consolidation of Finmeccanica and is a small, significant step proving Italian industry has not just a past but also a future," Renzi said.
