Bombardier has signed an order with an
undisclosed customer for six new Q400 aircraft.
Based on the list price, the firm order is
valued at approximately US$ 202 million.
“The Q400 aircraft offers the perfect balance of
passenger comfort and operating economics while maintaining its
unmatched range and speed advantage versus other turboprops,” said
Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “The
demand for turboprop aircraft worldwide is tremendous and the Q
Series aircraft are ideally positioned to meet the needs of
regional airlines as they offer a unique ability to serve diverse
and challenging environments. The Q400 offers the lowest seat
costs amongst turboprops, with an enhanced passenger experience
and a proven 99.5 per cent reliability.”
The Q400 is powered by two PW150A turboprop
engines, has a maximum capacity of up to 90 passengers, depending
on configuration, and has a range of 1,100 nm.
