Twelfth Customer Added To The CSeries Aircraft Program
Bombardier Aerospace announced Sunday that a new customer, which has requested to remain unidentified at this time, has placed a conditional order for five CS100 and 10 CS300 jetliners. Based on the list prices of CS100 and CS300 aircraft, the contract is valued at approximately $1.02 billion US.
“Bombardier’s CSeries aircraft provide a distinct economic advantage compared to any aircraft in their class, and we are thrilled to welcome the twelfth CSeries aircraft customer to the program,” said Mike Arcamone, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “The CS100 and CS300 airliners combine unmatched field performance along with transcontinental range, creating opportunities for new business models; what’s more, they’ll be contributing to more sustainable aviation with their reduced environmental footprints.”
The CSeries aircraft is scheduled to enter into service in late 2013.
The planemaker also said that Canadian carrier Jazz Aviation LP (“Jazz”) of Halifax, Nova Scotia is the latest airline to enroll in its Q400 Smart Parts cost protection program. In the past few months alone, five prominent airlines worldwide have signed customized long-term Smart Parts agreements for their Q400 aircraft fleet.
Smart Parts provides a broad spectrum of options to help airlines manage their operational and parts maintenance costs. The nine-year agreement with Jazz is tailored to the airline’s need for convenient access to parts and cost efficient inventory management for its fleet of Q400 NextGen turboprop airliners, from entry-into-service through to 2020.
