Air Canada Places Order for 75 Bombardier CS300s
The order is valued at approximately $3.8 billion, and could increase to $6.3 billion if the airline exercises all options.
The agreement is consistent with a letter of intent that the two announced in February.
Bombardier says that its C series family of aircraft is a 100% all-new design that offers up to $13 million extra value per plane. The series focuses on the 100- to 150-seat market, and delivers over a 10% unit cost advantage as compared to similarly sized aircraft.
The planes are outfitted with 19”-wide seats and the largest windows on a single-aisle aircraft. They have a maximum range of 3,300 nautical miles (6,112 kilometers).
