Bombardier has announced that an undisclosed customer has signed a firm purchase agreement for 10 CRJ900 aircraft, valued at approximately U.S. $472 million (at list prices).
With this latest order, Bombardier has notched up a total of 1,902 firm orders for CRJ Series aircraft family. Total CRJ900 orders stand at 428 aircraft.
“The modern and fuel efficient CRJ900 aircraft continues to maintain its solid footing and set industry benchmarks with its lower operating costs, outstanding operational flexibility and enhanced cabin amenities,” said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.
“These are key drivers for the growth, profitability and success of airlines around the world and we are delighted that the CRJ900 aircraft is creating excellent value for a wide variety of operators with diverse business requirements.”
The CRJ Series regional jets are optimized for medium-haul regional routes, where then can offer as much as a 10 per cent cash operating cost advantage over competing jets.
The CRJ900 is ideally suited for growing markets where its tremendous flexibility is an asset. The smaller CRJ200 regional jet is ideal for opening new routes and markets, while the CRJ700 regional jet is the lightest aircraft in its category.
The CRJ1000 offers the highest passenger capacity in the family, while burning up to 13 per cent less fuel than its competitors.
