EgyptAir have today made a welcome announcement to purchase 12 C Series jets, with the potential of further in the future.
East Belfast DUP MP Gavin Robinson commented, “Today’s news is significant and shows the growing enthusiasm that surrounds the C Series jet. With 12 C Series jets ordered and the potential for a further 12, this will create a boost to the economy and the Belfast plant.
This comes on the back of a letter of intent from a European company earlier in the month to purchase 61 C Series jets and of course the recent deal with Airbus. It shows that companies are giving Bombardier a vote of confidence and are willing to do business, given the ingenuity the workforce here and the quality of aircraft produced.”
