Spain’s Air Nostrum orders 35 jets from Bombardier

Bombardier Aerospace says a Spanish airline has now placed firm orders for 35 of its CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft in a deal valued at US$1.75 billion.

PARIS — Bombardier Aerospace says a Spanish airline has now placed firm orders for 35 of its CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft in a deal valued at US$1.75 billion.

The transportation giant says Valencia-based Air Nostrum has upgraded what was a conditional order more than two years ago to a firm order for 15 of the planes.

It says delivery of the 15 planes, worth about US$793 million, will start in 2014 and continue through 2016.

The company also has identified Air Nostrum as the buyer who also placed a firm order for 15 of the CRJ1000s back in February 2007.

Bombardier also says the independent airline has asked for a conversion of five remaining CRJ900 aircraft to CRJ1000 NextGen jets.
