Canada's Bombardier Aerospace confirmed a firm order for five super midsize Challenger 300 jets from China-based Donghai Jet Company Ltd.
The total value of the order is approximately USD121 million, based on the 2010 list price for typically equipped aircraft. Upon delivery, the Challenger 300 business jets will join a new Challenger 605 jet, which was handed over during a special ceremony at Donghai Jet's headquarters in Shenzhen on November 13, 2010.
Donghai Jet will soon operate the first Challenger 300 and Challenger 605 jets to be based in China.
Donghai Jet is headquartered at Shenzhen airport and was jointly established by Shenzhen Donggang Investment Development Ltd., East Pacific Holdings Ltd. and Win Glory Enterprises Ltd., a Sino-foreign joint venture. In addition to charter services, Donghai Jet also provides trading consultation, management and maintenance services for business jets.
