Mesa Orders NestGen for UA Ex

In an order worth approximately $334 million, Mesa ordered 10 CRJ700 NextGen regional jets, two of which it converted from a previous CRJ900s, for its United Express partnership. The airline also placed a conditional order for another CRJ700 NextGen aircraft. Mesa Air Group currently operates 116 CRJ aircraft including 58 CRJ100/200s, 20 CRJ700 with 66 seats in a three-class interior, and 38 CRJ900 aircraft with 86 seats. Including the order announced today, Bombardier has received orders for 1,585 CRJ Series regional jets, including 266 CRJ700 aircraft. Bombardier will fold the CRJ-900 NextGen deliveries into its production line this year, with the CRJ-700 NextGen in 2008 and the CRJ-1000 in the first quarter 2009. In the meantime, it will produce a mixture of current CRJs and NextGens between now and then. Related Story
