Bombardier Commercial Aircraft has delivered the first of seven CRJ900 aircraft to Mesa Air Group, Inc. of Phoenix, Arizona (Mesa Airlines). Mesa will operate the aircraft for American Airlines under the American Eagle brand.

As the launch customer of the CRJ900 and a Bombardier customer for more than 25 years, we are thrilled to add the newest CRJ900 aircraft to our fleet. Bombardier and the CRJ Series aircraft continue to play a significant role in Mesas continuing growth strategy, said Jonathan Ornstein, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. The CRJ900 aircraft with its advanced technology and enhanced fuel efficiencies remains a reliable and cost-effective regional jet solution for our growing fleet. We would like to thank our longtime friends at Bombardier for their continued collaboration.

The newly delivered aircraft will increase Mesas fleet of CRJ900 regional jets to 58, reconfirming the airlines standing as one of the largest operators of this aircraft model.

Mesas new CRJ900 aircraft are configured with 76 seats in a dual-class interior. The airline also operates 20 CRJ700 aircraft with 70 seats in a three-class interior. By September 2015, Mesas currently scheduled deliveries will bring its regional jet fleet total to 115.
