TORONTO (AP) -- Bombardier Aerospace says it has reached a deal with Deutsch Lufthansa AG worth at least $1.5 billion for the Montreal company's new regional jet.
The world's third-largest maker of commercial aircraft said Wednesday it has signed a contract to build 30 CSeries model CS100 passenger aircraft for the German carrier.
The company, a unit of Bombardier Inc., said the deal also contains options for an additional 30 planes.
The company values the deal at least $1.5 billion based on the list price for the first 30 planes.
The aircraft will be operated by Lufthansa subsidiary Swiss International Air Lines Ltd.
