Bombardier wins order for 24 CRJ900s valued at $1.4 billion

An unidentified customer has signed a firm order for 24 Bombardier CRJ900 NextGen aircraft, the Canadian manufacturer said.

Based on list prices, the order is valued at $1.14 billion. Bombardier Commercial Aircraft SVP-sales, marketing and asset management Ray Jones said in a statement, “With the most recent enhancements to the aircraft, we are constantly moving that benchmark forward, reducing the CRJ900 NextGen airliner’s fuel burn by up to 5.5% compared to earlier-generation CRJ900 aircraft, and making it the ideal tool for operators looking at further increasing the efficiency of their fleets.”

The order brings Bombardier’s total firm orders for CRJs to 1,858, including 384 CRJ900s.
