American Airlines and Bombardier announced a firm order for 24 CRJ900 NextGen regional jets.

The deal was first reported at the end of 2014 when American said it would exercise 24 of 40 options originally announced in December 2013.

PSA Airlines, a regional carrier owned by American Airlines Group, will operate the new airliners under the American Eagle brand.

The deal is valued at $1.14 billion at list price.

PSA, which was named after Pacific Southwest Airlines although it is unrelated, operates an all-Bombardier fleet of 69 planes including 35 CRJ-200s, 14 CRJ-701s, and 19 CRJ-900s.
