An anonymous customer cancels its order for five Bombardier CRJ900 jets

Montreal, Quebec - Bombardier Aerospace has announced that an anonymous customer canceled its order for five CRJ900 jets.

The statement came during the presentation of the company's quarterly figures.

We're reducing our delivery outlook by five aircraft as we are mutually agreed with the customer to cancel an order. These aircraft which are already in production will be redirected to 2020 deliveries,

The Chief Financial Officer John Di Bert said.

The Canadian aircraft manufacturer is currently in the process of handing over its CRJ line to the Japanese Mitsubishi Heavy Industries who bought the whole aircraft program.

The remaining CRJ backlog will be assembled by Bombardier over the next 12 to 15 months. Some will be delivered by the manufacturer before closing the line and the rest will be delivered by Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation by the end of 2020.
