EgyptAir signs $1.1 bln preliminary deal for 12 Bombardier CSeries jets

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.

To date, Bombardier is thought to have won orders for more than 400 of the C Series aircraft.

No Middle East customer has said when it would take delivery of CSeries jets.

EgyptAir chairman and CEO Safwat Musallam said the CS300 will be used for growth and for the replacement of smaller narrowbodies. The deal is valued at $1.1bn before discounts.

The announcement was made at the Dubai Airshow and the firm has signed a letter of intent (LOI).

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

The same thing was also stated by another official from GI Registry in order to make the matter clear for one and all. It quoted 19-century history to claim rosogolla was invented by Nabin Chandra Das, a famous sweetmeat maker, in 1868.

Colin Bole, Bombardier's senior vice president of commercial aircraft, said there were no particular conditions or terms that needed to be met to finalize the deals.

Bole said, "I think it's a great template and it's something that will be followed extremely closely by the other carriers in the region", he said.

A firm-order contract would be valued at around $1.1 billion and is EgyptAir buys all 24 planes the contract value would increase to almost $2.2 billion.

Bombardier is in the process of axing 280 jobs at its factories in the North, and the group is still fighting a ruling from the US Commerce Department that could see import duties of 300 per cent imposed on every CSeries aircraft sold in the US.

A US trade commission will decide in early 2018 on whether to impose duties of almost 300 percent on the CSeries, after Boeing complained the planes had been subsidised and sold below cost in the United States.
