East Belfast MP Gavin Robinson has welcomed the letter of intent from a European customer to Bombardier for up to 61 CSeries jets.
The local MP said, “With 31 firm orders and options for a further 30 jets this could mean an order valued up to $4.8billion for Bombardier if all 30 options are exercised. It is a welcome piece of news for the company as a whole and obviously for the Belfast plant.
The timing too is significant and is a vote of confidence in the joint venture between Bombardier and Airbus. I hope this might be the first of many new orders for this ground-breaking aircraft.”
