China Express Airlines and Bombardier announced an order for three CRJ900 NextGen airliners.  In addition, the airline also entered into conditional purchase agreements for five CRJ900 NextGen, with options for eight more of the aircraft.

The order for the three NextGens is valued at approximately $134 million at list prices.  If the conditional agreement and options for additional planes are converted to firm orders, the value would rise to approximately $733 million.

The CRJ900 NextGen aircraft feature larger winglets, and new interiors with larger overhead luggage bins and windows, as well as improved lighting and new ceiling panels and sidewalls.

China Express Airlines is a regional carrier based in Guiyang, China, which currently operates a fleet of five CRJ200 and six CRJ900 NextGen aircraft.
