Bombardier Confirms All Nippon Airways as Previously Unidentified Q400 NextGen Aircraft Customer

Bombardier Aerospace confirmed today that a firm order for five Q400 NextGen aircraft and options for another five, which was previously announced on August 3, 2009, was placed by All Nippon Airways Co. Ltd (ANA) of Tokyo, Japan.

As previously announced, based on the list price for the Q400 NextGen aircraft, the firm order contract is valued at approximately $159 million US, and could increase to $332 million US should all five options be converted to firm orders.

Optimized for short-haul operations, the 70- to 80-seat Q400 NextGen aircraft is a large, fast, quiet and fuel-efficient turboprop. It provides a perfect balance of passenger comfort and operating economics with a reduced environmental footprint. As of today, Bombardier had booked firm orders for a total of 378 Q400 and Q400 NextGen aircraft and as of January 31, 2010, 288 had been delivered.
