MONTREAL, July 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bombardier Commercial Aircraft announced today that it has signed a firm order for four new CRJ900 regional jets with Uganda National Airlines Company.

Based on the list price for the CRJ900 aircraft, the firm order is valued at approximately US$190 million.

"We congratulate the Government of Uganda for the revival of its national flag carrier, and are thrilled that the new airline has selected Bombardier and the CRJ900 regional jets for its upcoming debut," said Jean-Paul Boutibou, Vice President, Sales, Middle-East and Africa, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. "Recognized for its superior economics and efficiency, the CRJ Series aircraft have enabled airlines worldwide to serve communities with better connectivity, and we look forward to supporting the development of Uganda's regional air travel with these CRJ900 regional jets."

Uganda Airlines will operate the CRJ900 in dual-class configuration with 76 seats, including 12 first class seats.

"We are delighted to have ordered the world's leading regional jet, and we look forward to providing the most modern passenger experience in regional aviation to the people of Uganda and across Africa," said Ephraim Bagenda, CEO, Uganda National Airlines. "As we were establishing Entebbe as a strong hub in East Africa and building more connectivity in Africa, we thoroughly reviewed our needs. With its proven track record in Africa and other regions of the world, we are confident that the CRJ900 aircraft will help us succeed."

Today, 21 operators are flying 58 CRJ Series in Africa. Including the order announced today, Bombardier has recorded firm orders for 1957 CRJ Series regional jets.

About the ATMOSPHÈRE  Cabin
The new ATMOSPHÈRE cabin sets new standards of passenger experience in the regional jet market segment. Key features of the new interior are comprised of larger passenger living space, wheel-first roller bag capability, more spacious lavatory, increased cabin connectivity options, all integrated in a contemporary design and material choices. In fact, the ATMOSPHÈRE cabin design allows passengers to carry and store an "oversized" roller bag within the aircraft cabin bins which minimizes the need to check bags at the counter or the gate.
