European Airline Orders 4 Q400's

An unidentified European airline has ordered 4 Bombardier Q400 NextGen airliners and took options on another four.

Source: http://www.bombardier.com/en/corpora...ses/details?docID=0901260d80192960

Any idea on which airline ordered the planes? My bet would be Air Baltic as they recently stated that they are retiring the Fokker 50 and already have 8 Q400's in the fleet. Or possibly an airline such as Wideroe has decided to expand with further Q400's.

Thoughts?

Cheers,
CRJ900X

Possibly BE, as this would knock their Q400 total up to 63 once delivered I believe.

LGW / AB is another option, along with LG, OA / A3, Air Nostrum, LH and MA.

Hasn't BE removed several Q400s lately? Or were they just returned to lessors and they are taking their own aircraft?

Widerøe could probably use a few more, their Q400s are very busy these days.

Far-fetched idea (well maybe not so):

Maybe this could be related:

InterSky, a small airline providing service from FDH to TXL, DUS, CGN, VIE amongst others signed a codeshare deal with Air Berlin and wants to replace its 4 Dash 8-300 with Q400's or ATR-72, according to the cited article.

I also think InterSky is the best bet.

EuroLOT (K2) has been rumored to negotiate with both Bombardier and EADS/Alenia for ATR replacement, yet they need more than just 4 units (current fleet is 8-10 AT7 and 4 AT5).

BT is a risky bet, they had 4 Q400 options and they just got rid of F50, however their financial status (which is all over the news) is widely debated. However I would love them ordering some more Q400

Quoting AustrianZRH (Reply 7):

Was my first thought as well. They are growing very successfully at BRN and they operate a good number of charter flights on behalf of other airlines. I also seem to remember reading about their future plans to acquire new Q400s. Hence, my suspicion it's them I guess lol

Your link doesn't work by the way.

Could be MA. They leased 4 ex-SAS Q400s in 2009 and signed an LOI for 4 options to be delivered in 2011. This could be those options being firmed.
