TRANS STATES HOLDINGS FIRMS UP ORDER FOR 50 MRJS

Trans States Holdings has firmed up an order with Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation for 50 MRJ regional jets.

“Since the announcement of the Letter of Intent in October 2009, TSH and Mitsubishi Aircraft have been constantly exchanging views and strengthening the relationship. Both parties are pleased to conclude the definitive purchase agreement of the MRJ – the game-changing next-generation regional jet,” the airline said in a statement.

Richard Leach, president of TSH said: “We are the first airline outside of Japan to purchase this exciting new aircraft, and we will be the first to place it into service in the US.

“As the largest privately-owned regional airline holding company in America, we offer more than 500 daily flights servicing 93 cities and transport over eight million passengers annually.”

Mitsubishi Aircraft president Hideo Egawa said: “Concluding this major order with TSH… has given confidence to our MRJ programme.”
