Single Aisle News - July 4, 2016

July 4, 2016

Air Canada has finalized its order for 45 Bombardier C-Series aircraft, with options on another 30.  Deliveries would begin in 2019.

Swiss International Air Lines took delivery of its first CS100 Bombardier C-Series aircraft this past week.  The Swiss aircraft are configured for 125 seats.

Airbus and Embraer are both threatening litigation over government aid received by Bombardier to transition the C-Series into production.

Embraer has begun manufacture of the first components for the wing of its E175-E2 prototype.

Embraer is looking to bring its E190-E2 prototype to this year's Farnborough Air Show, where it will likely join the Airbus A320 NEO, Boeing 737 MAX, and Bombardier C-Series in the display line-up.

Embraer ha signed a $470 milion deal with Alcoa for the supply of raw material for the Embraer E2 family of aircraft.

Boeing officials have signaled that a new "middle of the market" (MoM) single-aisle aircraft is less a matter of if, than when it would be launched.  Officials at the manufacturer estimate that between 4,000 and 5,000 aircraft in this size range - between the 737 and 787 airline - could be sold to replace 757 and 767 aircraft.

Engine manufacturer Pratt & Whitney has announced that it will dedicate $65 million to expand its Columbus Engine Center in Georgia, to handle maintenance of PW1100G Geared Turbofan engines.
