Bombardier Inc.'s (BBD.B-T) aerospace unit said a European customer has placed a order for 10 CS100 jetliners, valued at about $628 million US.

The world's third-biggest civil aircraft maker did not name the customer, but said this was the first time the customer was buying its aircrafts.

"This brings to eight the number of customers committed to the CSeries aircraft program," Gary Scott, president of Bombardier Commercial Aircraft, said in a statement.

Montreal-based Bombardier, which had been under pressure for months to announce new orders for its 110- to 145-seater CSeries jet that is set to enter the market in late-2013, said it has added five new customers at the Paris Air Show.

The CSeries jet is to compete with Boeing Co's 737 and Airbus' A320.

Including Friday's order, Bombardier said it has booked firm orders for 123 CSeries aircraft, which includes 61 CS100 and 62 CS300 aircraft.

Other customers that have firm orders for CSeries aircraft include Republic Airways, Deutsche Lufthansa AG and Sweden's Braathens Aviation.

The CSeries aircraft program has also booked options for 109 aircraft. Korean Air, its first Asian customer for the airplane, has signed a letter of intent for up to 30 CSeries aircraft, Bombardier said.
