Bombardier delivers the first Enhanced CRJ900 NextGen Regional Jet to American Airlines

Bombardier Aerospace has delivered the first of 30 enhanced CRJ900 NextGen aircraft to American Airlines. The aircraft will be operated by AA’s wholly-owned subsidiary PSA Airlines under the American Eagle brand. The purchase agreement for the aircraft, which was announced in December 2013, also included options on an additional 40 CRJ900 NextGen aircraft.

American Airlines is the first customer to take delivery of the enhanced CRJ900 NextGen regional jet, which provides up to 5.5 per cent fuel burn reduction over earlier-generation CRJ900 aircraft.

“We look forward to integrating the enhanced CRJ900 NextGen aircraft into our fleet and to expanding service for our customers,” said Keith Houk, President, PSA Airlines. “The new CRJ900 NextGen aircraft will provide us with new opportunities and signal a bright future for PSA.”

“This milestone delivery of the first enhanced CRJ900 NextGen aircraft further cements our long-standing relationship with American Airlines and we are pleased to welcome PSA Airlines as the latest operator to join the CRJ900 NextGen family,” said Ray Jones, Senior Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Asset Management, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.
