Bombardier Reports Orders For CRJ1000 Airliners, Q400 Turboprops

Both Customers Request That They Not Yet Be Named

Bombardier Aerospace announced today that an airline, which has requested to remain unidentified at the present time, has signed a firm order for six CRJ1000 NextGen regional jets and has taken options on another 18. Based on the list price of the CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft, the airline’s firm order is valued at approximately $297 million US and could increase to approximately $1.32 billion US should all 18 options be exercised.

“The CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft continues to perform beyond expectations with its current operators, and we are thrilled to welcome another customer,” said Mike Arcamone, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “The CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft is achieving the lowest seat mile cost in its market segment; delivering exceptional reliability; and contributing to more sustainable aviation with its reduced environmental footprint.”
 
Including this order, Bombardier has recorded firm orders for 1,715 CRJ Series aircraft, with 1,661 delivered as of December 31, 2011.

The planemaker also says that a second customer which has asked to not be named at the present time has signed a firm purchase agreement for five Q400 NextGen airliners. Based on the list price for the Q400 NextGen airliner, the transaction is valued at approximately $160 million.

“Q400 and Q400 NextGen aircraft have been gaining headway in markets around the world, and approximately 40 operators now have these aircraft in service or on firm order,” said Mike Arcamone, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “Q400 aircraft have transformed the perception of turboprops, and as airlines and other operators benefit from the aircraft’s advanced capabilities, the turboprop lives on.”
