Bombarider signs LOI with CemAir for two Q400s

Bombardier Commercial has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with South African operator CemAir for two Bombardier Q400 turboprops.

Based on list pricing, the aircraft order is worth approximately $65 million.

Jean-Paul Boutibou, vice president, sales, Middle East and Africa said: “We are proud of the Q Series turboprops’ continued success in Africa. Our operators appreciate their outstanding economics and performance, and we are delighted that CemAir intends to add new Q400 aircraft to its current fleet of Bombardier aircraft.

“With its unmatched capabilities, the Q400 is uniquely suitable for the region and we are thrilled with this additional recognition for our modern and versatile turboprop.”

This firm order brings CemAir’s Bombardier portfolio to 17 aircraft, comprising five Q-series turboprops and 12 CRJs.

Miles van der Molen, CEO, CemAir said: “With their impressive short runway performance and the flexibility it brings to our operations, the Q Series turboprops have allowed us to build our network and fly passengers from more airports. We are looking forward to the addition of these brand new Q400 aircraft which will help us support our growth and increase connectivity in South Africa.”
