I think this warrants a dedicated thread - official Bombardier press release:



PRESS RELEASE

• Bombardier Sells an Additional 15 CRJ1000 NextGen Aircraft to Air Nostrum

• Airline also confirmed as previously unidentified launch customer for CRJ1000
NextGen aircraft

• Air Nostrum’s cumulative orders for Bombardier aircraft since 1998, now total 100,
including 35 CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft


Paris, June 14, 2009 – Bombardier Aerospace today confirmed that Air Nostrum of Valencia, Spain has now placed firm orders for a total of 35 CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft including:

• A new firm order for 15 CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft, being announced today. This firm
order was previously announced by Bombardier on February 19, 2007 as a conditional
order for 15 CRJ1000 aircraft by an unidentified customer. Delivery of these 15 aircraft
will start in 2014 and continue through 2016;

• A firm order for 15 CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft, previously announced by Bombardier on
February 19, 2007 as a firm order placed by an unidentified launch customer;

• A conversion of five remaining CRJ900 aircraft to CRJ1000 NextGen jets from a firm
order for 16 CRJ900 aircraft placed by Air Nostrum in 2004. The other 11 ordered
CRJ900 aircraft have been delivered to the airline.

Based on the list price for the CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft, the new firm order for 15
CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft announced today is valued at approximately $ 793 million US. The total value of Air Nostrum’s orders for 35 CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft is approximately $ 1.75 billion US. “Air Nostrum is proud to be a launch customer for the CRJ1000 NextGen regional jet, which promises the same qualities as the CRJ200 and CRJ900 aircraft that we currently operate,” said Carlos Bertomeu, Chief Executive Officer, Air Nostrum. “Bombardier’s products have propelled us to our position as one of Europe’s largest and most prestigious regional airlines. We fully expect our new CRJ1000 NextGen airliners – and especially their outstanding economics - to help us continue to grow and prosper.”

Good news for Air Nostrum and BBD, but this order brings up questions too:

Buying CRJ1000s as well as converting part ot their outstanding 900s means that they expect to grow in the future. The financial crisis will be over by 2014, but Spain will by then have the probably largest high-speed rail network in Europe, which is a huge menace to Air Nostrum's domestic flights. Will they grow more towards Europe? What routes could the -1000s be used on? To understand this order we would need to know more about Air Nostrum's long term strategic plan...

Will Air Nostrum take over a lot of Iberia's thinner European routes with the CRJ1000?

The CRJ1000 can reach most of Europe from Spain, so they may be a strong competitor to LCCs, which need to sell 150 seats to fill their planes.



Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

Well, the news of this order going through will surely mean that Iberia will increase Air Nostrum flying and taking over some of their perhaps lackluster European routes from Madrid and perhaps allow Air Nostrum to focus on other airports in Spain to Europe.

Just wondering if Iberia will use Air Nostrum to open new routes into Europe? Perhaps more flights into the UK and other areas, where Iberia has yet to step into and connect to their hub?
