Bombardier has confirmed that CDB Leasing (CLC), one of China’s top leasing companies, is the previously-announced undisclosed customer that signed a conditional purchase agreement for five CS100 and 10 CS300 aircraft. The purchase agreement also includes options on an additional five CS100 and 10 CS300 aircraft, for a total of up to 30 CSeries aircraft.

“Given ongoing high fuel prices and increased environmental concerns, older and less efficient aircraft represent one of the greatest challenges to airlines,” said CLC chairman Wang Chong.

“Following an in-depth analysis of existing and re-engined aircraft, the CSeries family of airliners, with its unmatched economics, advanced technology, excellent operational flexibility, as well as its outstanding performance seemed like the obvious choice and shows great potential for operators in China and abroad.”
