J-AIR Re-equips


JAPAN AIRLINES (JAL) is to split its order for new aircraft to re-equip its regional subsidiary J-AIR, by signing deals with both Embraer and Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation.  The Japanese national carrier announced on August 28 that it had signed a firm agreement with the Brazilian manufacturer for 15 E170s and E190s in a deal valued at $677 million at current list prices.  The exact breakdown between the two variants was not revealed, but it also placed options for a further 12 E-Jet family jets.  Deliveries are due to start next year and will be used to replace the carrier’s Bombardier CRJ200s, which are being retired, as well as to expand its regional route network.
