Bombardier Aerospace announced that an airline, which has requested to remain unidentified for the moment, has placed a firm order for three CS100s with options on three more, deliveries to begin in 2014.
"As we have been saying for some time now, the CSeries family of aircraft is an unmatched value proposition in its segment," declared Chet Fuller, senior vice president, sales, marketing and asset management, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. "The orders announced last week [for Malmo Aviation on lease from Braathens] and today confirm that the CSeries aircraft’s widebody-style comfort, exceptional performance capabilities, low cash operating costs and environmental credentials make it an ideal air transport solution worldwide."
This deal increases firm orders for the CSeries family to 103 including 41 CS100s and 62 CS300s, and raises the number of CSeries aircraft customers to five.
