Kenya Airways looks in to Bombardier or Embraer order

Posted 5 June 2018 · Add Comment

Kenya Airways is interested in the Bombardier CSeries or Embraer E2 jet for a short-haul order of 15-20 aircraft, reports Afritraveller.

“The performance of the CSeries has to be studied,” said Sebastian Mikosz at the annual IATA airlines meeting in Sydney, adding he had been inspired by Air Baltic’s order of up to 60 CS300 jets.

However, Mikosz said that one of the issues was the availability of maintenance for the CSeries in Africa, but that with EgyptAir having placed an order and Ethiopian Airlines studying the jet, that could change the case.

Bombardier is expected to close within days a deal to sell control of the CSeries program to Europe’s Airbus.
