India : PURCHASE agreement for CRJ900 NextGen regional jet is signed by PAS.

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft has declared that Petroleum Air Services (PAS) of Cairo, Egypt has inked a firm purchase agreement to purchase a CRJ900 NextGen regional jet.

The order is a conversion of a purchase option that PAS purchased in 2011 with its first firm-ordered CRJ900 NextGen aircraft.

Bombardier moreover confirmed that it has strong representation at the African Airlines Association ( AFRAA ) Annual General Assembly being held in Algiers this week. Leaders of African and Middle Eastern airlines in the gathering have gathered alongside aircraft manufacturers, suppliers and association representatives to talk about industry matters and business.

General Yehia Hussein, chairman and managing director, Petroleum Air Services said, When we purchased our first CRJ900 NextGen aircraft we were seeking a proven jet aircraft to enhance services to our customers and for our tourism destinations . The CRJ900 NextGen aircraft has delivered exactly what we were seeking and is performing very well in the harsh environmental conditions that are typical in the African environment. It is also delivering outstanding fuel efficiency and reliability, so we are purchasing another to further expand our operations.

John Kassis, regional vice president, Sales, Middle East and Africa, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft said, We were delighted when Petroleum Air Services selected the CRJ900 NextGen regional jet in 2011 since the company is well respected in the region and has a rigorous aircraft evaluation process . PAS has done a most commendable job of introducing the CRJ900 NextGen aircraft to Egypt, and the company s acquisition of another is an excellent testimonial to the aircraft s performance attributes and suitability for the region.
