Bombardier Aerospace announced that Tripoli-based Libyan African Aviation Holding Company signed a firm order for 3 CRJ900 NextGen aircraft and also took options on an additional 3 CRJ900 NextGen aircraft. The aircraft will be operated by Libyan Airlines, a subsidiary of Libyan African Aviation Holding Company.

Based on the list price for the CRJ900 NextGen aircraft, the contract is valued at approximately $131.5 million US, which could increase to $267.8 million US should all 3 options be converted to firm orders.

Libyan Airlines currently operates 3 CRJ900 and 2 CRJ900 NextGen aircraft in a two-class configuration with 7 business class and 68 economy seats. The airline's previous orders for CRJ900 and CRJ900 NextGen aircraft were announced on 14 June 2007 and 03 January, 2008 respectively.

"This acquisition of modern, state-of-the-art CRJ900 NextGen aircraft is a part of the continuing fleet renewal program for Libyan Airlines," said Captain Sabri Shadi, Chairman, Libyan African Aviation Holding Company. "The CRJ900 NextGen aircraft will provide lower operating costs, increased passenger comfort and reduced environmental impact compared to Libyan Airlines' older jet aircraft."

"Libyan Airlines continues to grow its fleet of CRJ900 NextGen airliners to satisfy the needs of its customers and the region," said Gary R. Scott, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. "This third order for Libyan Airlines' fleet confirms that the CRJ900 and CRJ900 NextGen aircraft are meeting its expectations and business requirements."
