Estonian Air has signed a firm order with Bombardier Aerospace for three CRJ900 NextGen aircraft and taken options on two more of the type.
This firm order replaces the firm order for three CRJ900 NextGen aircraft that was announced on 10 March 2008 as part of a purchase by SAS Scandinavian Airlines and three of its affiliate airlines, including Estonian Air.
"We require aircraft with less capacity than our mainline jets," said Andrus Aljas, president and chief executive officer, Estonian Air. "The CRJ900 NextGen aircraft, which offer an excellent combination of performance, operating economics and passenger comfort, are ideally suited for our requirements and will be deployed as part of our fleet optimisation programme."
Including this order from Estonian Air, Bombardier has recorded firm orders for a total of 1,709 CRJ Series aircraft, including 262 CRJ900 and CRJ900 NextGen aircraft.
