from The Canadian Press via Montreal Gazette
Chorus Aviation has placed an order for new planes after finalizing a contract with Air Canada that cuts costs and strengthens the partners’ ability to compete with WestJet Encore. The Halifax parent company of Jazz Aviation placed a firm order for 13 Bombardier Q400 turboprop planes valued at US$424 million at list prices. Options for 10 more Q400s would increase the value to $758 million. The planes will be mainly added through the end of 2016, with the fleet of 74-seat planes more than doubling to 44 by 2020.
