Apr 28, 2016

Invest Northern Ireland Chief Executive Alastair Hamilton has welcomed the announcement that Delta Air Lines, Inc. of Atlanta, Georgia has signed a firm agreement with Bombardier to purchase 75 CS100 aircraft with the option for an additional 50 CS100 aircraft.

Alastair Hamilton said: “Today’s announcement is excellent news for Bombardier, the C Series programme and for Northern Ireland, where major components including the composite wings for the CSeries have been designed, developed and are manufactured. This significant order valued at US$5.6 billion, is the largest in Bombardier Commercial Aircraft history and makes Delta the CSeries aircraft’s largest customer. As the first 100% new aircraft developed in over 30 years, this agreement is an important milestone for the CSeries programme which has significant economic importance to Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland is a global leader in aerospace technology and Invest NI continues to work closely with the local supply base to enhance its competitiveness and support its continued growth.”
