China Express Airlines Orders 10 More Bombardier CRJ900 Jetliners

Firm Orders For CRJ900 Stand At 409

China Express Airlines (China Express) has placed a firm order for 10 CRJ900 regional jets, raising its total orders for this model of aircraft to 38. With this transaction, China Express has exercised eight previously acquired options for CRJ900 aircraft. To date, 20 of the CRJ900 aircraft ordered by China Express have been delivered.

Based on the list price of the CRJ900 aircraft, the order announced today is valued at approximately $462.6 million.

Based in Chongqing and four other cities, China Express launched operations in 2006 and specializes in regional services. The airline now serves 62 cities in China.

"China Express is committed to providing air services to people in Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities in China. Our mission is to improve the connectivity by air for those communities," said Wu Longjiang, President, China Express Airlines. "The CRJ900 is the right aircraft for our cooperation with major airlines on code sharing and connecting flights, as well as cooperation with cities. It offers excellent economics and reliability and is well liked by our passengers. We continue to expand our fleet with these fine aircraft to serve both current and future demand and destinations."

"We are very pleased with China Express Airlines' continuing confidence in the CRJ900 jetliner and its role in expanding regional airline services in China," said Andy Solem, Vice President, Sales, China and North Asia, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. "Our 2015-2034 Commercial Aircraft Market Forecast expects delivery of some 900 60- to 100-seat airliners to China during the forecast period and the CRJ900 regional jet is proving to be a perfect fit in that market segment."

"Bombardier has made significant enhancements to the CRJ900 aircraft since its introduction -- most significantly a 5.5 per cent fuel burn reduction compared to earlier models -- and the aircraft is now in service with more than 20 airlines and other operators that recognize its superior performance," said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. "With today's announcement, we are delighted that firm orders for CRJ900 jetliners have crossed another milestone and now stand at 409 aircraft."
