Bombardier Aerospace announced today that China Express Airlines has converted a previously announced conditional order for six CRJ900 NextGen regional jets to a firm order. The transaction includes options on an additional five CRJ900 NextGen aircraft.
As previously announced, and based on the list price of the CRJ900 NextGen airliner, the firm order contract is valued at approximately $264 million US, and could increase to approximately $491 million US should the five options be converted to firm orders.
Bombardier announced on October 26, 2011 that a Chinese airline, which at that time wished to be unidentified, had placed a conditional order for CRJ900 NextGen jetliners. On February 9, 2012, Bombardier confirmed that the order had been placed by China Express Airlines.
