DSC_1474Air Canada announced that it finalized a purchase agreement with Bombardier that includes a firm order for 45 CS300 aircraft, and options for an additional 30.

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).
