The Sukhoi SuperJet which crashed into Mount Salak, killing all 45 people on board, had experienced no technical problems and was in full compliance with international rules.
The judgement came from leading aviation figures as a full investigation into the cause of the crash gets underway.
Mikhail Pogosyan, United Aircraft Corporation head, said: "There had been no technical problems with the aircraft until the moment of the catastrophe. This is confirmed by the fact that its first flight in Indonesia was carried out perfectly."
Suggestions that pilot error is the cause of the crash continue to mount, with Russian newspaper Izvestia claiming that the pilots could have ignored or turned off the aircraft's Terrain Warning and Awareness System, which would have alerted them to the approaching mountain.
Russia acting Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin echoed those sentiments, saying that experts believe human factors were the most probably cause of the crash.
"Experts say that all equipment functioned smoothly. In other words, it could be some kind of a human error," added Rogozin.
Studies of the crash scene, conducted by both Indonesian and Russian experts, are underway, but Pogosyan confirmed that the true cause of the crash will only be uncovered once information from the airliner's flight data recorders is analysed.
The 45 passengers killed in the crash include journalists, pilots and engineers from Sukhoi, as well as officials from Indonesian carriers.
