AIRCRAFT MANUFACTURER SAYS 4 CRJ900 SOLD TO UGANDA
(Posted 19th July 2018)
Hot on the heels of the announcement yesterday by Airbus and Uganda of the sale of two Airbus A330-800neo’s has Bombardier now issued a statement at their corporate headoffice in Montreal that Uganda has also struck a deal to buy 4 CRJ900 regional jets.
The jets, when delivered, will be among the first to showcase Bombardiers brand new cabin interior named ‘Atmosphere‘ and will be configured with both a business and economy class cabin.
The new cabin features offer passengers larger overhead compartments which, unlike the original cabin interior, will allow for the stowage of regular sized hand baggage.
The overall order of both wide body and single aisle aircraft is thought to be in the region of 700 plus million US Dollars at current prices.
No announcements have been made as to the delivery time frame of any of the ordered aircraft nor has an clear indication been given when the startup will likely launch operations.
