The agreement announced at the Dubai Airshow includes 12 CS300 aircraft with purchase rights for an additional 12 aircraft. Bombardier has signed its second potential C Series order in less than two weeks after EgyptAir Holding Co. announced plans to purchase up to 24 aircraft. Aboulafia said the C Series is a great plane but Bombardier has had major financial issues. That would raise the number of firm C Series orders to more than 400. Bellemare added that Bombardier was never seeking to use the C Series to compete with Boeing or Airbus.
