EgyptAir signs deal with bombardier to buy 24 CSeries aircraft

The accord is a significant win for Bombardier, which gains another customer for its new jet less than a month after the company agreed to cede control of the CSeries to Airbus in exchange for the European planemaker's marketing heft, manufacturing expertise and financial muscle.

Bombardier said on Tuesday that EgyptAir had signed a letter of intent to purchase 24 CS300 jets from the Canadian company.

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft president Fred Cromer expects the order to be made firm by the end of this year.

Earlier this month an unnamed European airline said it meant to buy at least 31 of the C-Series planes.

"We are respecting the customer's wishes to not disclose the identity", Cromer said from Dubai. The deal is valued at $1.1 billion before discounts.

The CSeries has won fans for its design and fuel efficiency but the lack of orders for the 110-130 seat plane over 18 months stemmed from doubts over its future before the industry-changing deal with Airbus.

The deal was inked at the ongoing Dubai Airshow. The aircraft had been plagued by delays and cost overruns, and recently was hit with 300% tariffs in the USA after a trade complaint by Boeing Co.

"But there are 3,000 other people employed in Bombardier that do not work on the CSeries - we need to see orders coming through for the other aircraft that keep these jobs in Northern Ireland", he said. A U.S. trade commission will decide in early 2018 whether to impose duties of almost 300 percent on the planes as urged by the U.S. Commerce Department.
