Bombardier Aerospace announced today that an existing customer, which has requested to remain unidentified at this time, has placed an additional conditional order for seven firm CS300 airliners as well as purchase rights for six additional CS300 aircraft.
Based on the list price of the aircraft, a firm order for the seven CSeries aircraft would be valued at approximately $553 million US.
“The CSeries airliner, with its best in-class economics, advanced technology and outstanding performance, will be instrumental in replacing older, less efficient aircraft presenting challenges because of high fuel costs and heightened environmental awareness,” said Ray Jones, Senior Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Asset Management, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.
“We are delighted that one of our existing customers is once again recognizing the CSeries jetliner’s unmatched flexibility and we congratulate our customer that has confidently ordered seven more aircraft.
“We are very optimistic about the current status of our order book, which stands at 513 orders and commitments. We are well on our way to reach our target for 300 firm orders by entry-into-service, and have already achieved our 20 customer goal,” he added.
