Luxair signed for three Bombardier Q400 turboprops plus an option for another two on 12 February 2015.
Based on the list price of the Q400 NextGen aircraft, the firm order is valued at approximately $100.3 million US and could increase to $169.5 million US should Luxair exercise all its options.
Optimized for short-haul operations and capable of seating up to 86 passengers, the Q400 NextGen aircraft is a relatively fast, quiet and fuel-efficient turboprop.
Including Luxair’s order, Bombardier has booked firm orders for a total of 537 Q400 and Q400 NextGen aircraft.
