Bombardier lands a second CSeries win after Airbus backs jet

Share

Less than a month after Airbus agreed to rescue Bombardier's struggling C Series jet program, Bombardier has announced a second order for the narrowbody passenger plane.

Bombardier expects to turn EgyptAir's letter of intent into a firm order by the end of 2017, commercial aircraft chief Fred Cromer told reporters on a conference call Tuesday from Dubai.

"We are respecting the customer's wishes to not disclose the identity", Cromer said from Dubai.

FDA Approves First Pill That Tracks If You've Swallowed It
Peter Kramer, who wrote "Listening to Prozac", said drugs like Abilify Mycite come with a built-in "tattletale". The FDA has approved the first drug with a digital ingestion tracking system, according to a press release.

The C Series has also been ordered by Iraqi Airways, Saudi Gulf and Gulf Air. Egypt civil aviation minister Sherif Fathy said in October that the government expected to pay about $3.3bn of the cost to acquire 45 aircraft.

Bombardier recently released its 20-year forecast for the African market, showing intra-regional traffic growing at 4.6% per year and the 60/150-seat fleet more than doubling over the period with the delivery of 550 aircraft. "That will take our firm order book to over 400 airplanes".

Earlier this month an unnamed European airline said it meant to buy at least 31 of the C-Series planes.

Through its recent agreement with Airbus, Bombardier plans to get around swingeing US tariffs on imports of the C Series by constructing aircraft at Airbus' US factory.

"We have opportunities to place some of those early Delta positions with other airlines", he said.

Cromer declined to say if the second assembly line in Alabama estimated by the company to be built at a cost of more than $300 million would be affected by the maintenance of high US duties.
