Estonian Air signs firm order with Bombardier Aerospace

Aircraft manufacturer Bombardier Aerospace announced that Estonian Air of Tallinn, Estonia, has signed a firm order for three CRJ900 NextGen aircraft and has also taken options on two CRJ900 NextGen aircraft.

Based on the CRJ900 NextGen aircraft list price, the contract is valued at approximately $123m (£77m), which could increase to $211m should both options be converted to firm orders.
