Mesa Airlines orders seven new CRJ900 NextGen aircraft

Mesa Airlines has reached an agreement in principle for the purchase of seven new CRJ900 NextGen aircraft to operate under a long-term capacity purchase agreement with a major US airline. The aircraft will be purchased new from Bombardier and will bring the total number of CRJ900 aircraft operated by the Company to 64. Delivery of the seven additional aircraft are expected this year. The agreement also includes an undisclosed number of options to purchase additional CRJ-900 aircraft.

“We would also like to thank our business partners at Bombardier who have supported us for over 20 years. Ordering these new aircraft will further strengthen the strong bond that exists between our two companies.”

Mesa was the launch customer for the CRJ900 aircraft in 2001 and is one of the largest operators of CRJ900 aircraft in the world.

The addition of these seven aircraft and 11 new E-175s scheduled for delivery later this year will bring Mesa’s fleet total to 115 aircraft by October of 2015.
