Ethiopian to purchase 10 Bombardier Q400s
Ethiopian Airlines, Ethiopia's flag carrier and one of the largest airlines in Africa, signed a firm $332 million-worth order to purchase ten Bombardier Q400 turboprop planes, the Canadian manufacturer announced on April 27, 2018. The order also includes purchase rights for five additional Q400 aircraft.
“The Bombardier turboprops continue to deliver unmatched performance to our operators, and we are proud that the flag carrier of Ethiopia is once again recognizing its tremendous value by increasing its fleet of Q400 aircraft,” said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “The market trend for high-performing and larger turboprops is intensifying, and this fifth reorder is a great example of the Q400 turboprop success story and the value it creates for clients around the world.”
The Q400 turboprop is the most recent development in the Bombardier Q Series family of aircraft. In addition to the standard single-class configuration, Q400 aircraft are available with an optional dual-class interior for enhanced passenger comfort; in an optional extra-capacity configuration offering up to 90 seats for higher-density markets; and in a cargo-passenger combi configuration.
