Bombardier wins order for up to 6 CS100 planes
Bombardier Aerospace, a unit of the world's third-largest civil aircraft maker Bombardier Inc. (BBD.B-T), said it received an order for up to 6 of its newest single-aisle CS100 aircraft that could be worth a total of $385 million.
It is Montreal-based Bombardier's second deal in as many weeks. The company said last week its new CSeries jetliner won a small 10-plane deal.
The latest order, from an unnamed airline, is for 3 CS100 aircraft, with options on 3 more.
"The orders announced last week 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," Charles (Chet) Fuller, Senior Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Asset Management, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft said in a statement on Tuesday.
Delivery would start in 2014, Bombardier Aerospace said in a statement, noting the CSeries family of aircraft now has 103 orders from a total of 5 customers.
