Dating back to the Canadair Regional Jet of the 1990s Bombardier has completed the sale of its CRJ airframe business to MHI RJ Aviation Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
Within the last two years the Montréal-based company has disposed of the C Series business to Airbus, and the Q400 line to Viking, now de Havilland Canada. Bombardier Aviation continues manufacturing and supporting its Learjet, Challenger and Global Jet operations.
Bombardier will continue to supply components and spare parts and will assemble the remaining 15 CRJ aircraft ordered by United Airlines with delivery expected in the second half of 2020.
Through this sale, MHI acquires the maintenance, support, refurbishment, marketing and sales activities for the CRJ Series aircraft, including the related services and support network located in Montréal (Québec) and Toronto (Ontario), and its service centres located in Bridgeport (West Virginia) and Tucson (Arizona), as well as the type certificates.
