It's Good To Be Bombardier: Mesa Orders 20 More 20 CRJs

RJ Revolution Continues With BIG Follow-On CRJ700 & CRJ900 Order

Mesa Air Group is spending big... and has placed a firm order for a total of 20 Bombardier CRJ700 and CRJ900 regional jets. The mix of models will be determined at a later date. The order is valued at an estimated $637 million U.S. ($837 million Cdn.) and represents the conversion of 20 of the 40 options that Mesa holds on the Bombardier CRJ700 and CRJ900 aircraft.

Mesa Air Group currently operates 69 Bombardier CRJ aircraft including 43 CRJ200, 15 CRJ700 and 11 CRJ900 aircraft. In addition a further 11 CRJ200 from Midway Airlines will soon join its fleet.

When the delivery of this recent order is complete Mesa Air Group will operate some 114 Bombardier CRJ aircraft and will have options on another 20 regional jets.

“We are delighted by Mesa Air Group’s continuing confidence in our CRJ family of aircraft. As a partner of America West, United and US Airways, Mesa CRJ aircraft have proven themselves throughout the United States,” said Steven A. Ridolfi, president, Bombardier Aerospace, Regional Aircraft. “Their low operating costs, coupled with additional economic benefits brought about by fleet commonality and same type rating between the Bombardier CRJ200, CRJ700 and CRJ900, offer additional, and substantial, cost savings.

“This order is yet more evidence that the regional airline revolution is continuing, and that Bombardier continues to lead the market in regional jets,” Mr. Ridolfi added.

Mesa Air Group currently operates a total of 158 aircraft with 984 daily departures to 159 cities in 39 states, the District of Columbia, Canada, Mexico and the Bahamas. It operates in the West and Midwest as America West Express; the Midwest and East as US Airways Express; in Denver as United Express; in Kansas City as Midwest Express; and in New Mexico and Texas as Mesa Airlines.
