Bombardier Commercial Aircraft has announced that Petroleum Air Services (PAS) has signed a firm purchase agreement to acquire one CRJ900 NextGen regional jet, converting an option that PAS acquired in 2011 with its first firm-ordered CRJ900 NextGen aircraft.
"When we purchased our first CRJ900 NextGen aircraft we were seeking a proven jet aircraft to enhance services to our customers and for our tourism destinations," explained General Yehia Hussein, chairman and managing director, Petroleum Air Services. "The CRJ900 NextGen has delivered exactly what we were seeking and is performing very well in the harsh environmental conditions that are typical in the African environment. It is also delivering outstanding fuel efficiency and reliability, so we are purchasing another to further expand our operations."
