Bombardier Commercial Aircraft announced today that an airline, which has requested to remain unidentified at the present time, has signed a firm purchase agreement for five Q400 NextGen turboprop airliners.
Based on the list price for the Q400 NextGen airliner, the transaction is valued at approximately $168 million US.
“In today’s challenging economic environment, the Q400 NextGen aircraft offers the optimum solution with four times the flexibility available to Bombardier operators today – single class, dual class, extra capacity seating for up to 86 passengers and the newly-launched cargo-passenger combi configurations,” said Ray Jones, Senior Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Asset Management, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.
“Q400 and Q400 NextGen turboprops continue to make headway in traditional and emerging markets around the world, and with over 50 customers and operators in nearly 40 countries, the Q400 aircraft’s value proposition is only expected to increase, further shaping the modern turboprop market.”
