Pluna Extends CRJ Order Book
Uruguay’s Pluna Air Lines has placed a firm order on three more 90-seat Bombardier CRJ900s worth $129 million at list prices, the Canadian manufacturer announced in late April. Based at Carrasco International Airport, near Montevideo, the flag carrier operates a uniform fleet of 10 CRJ900s, with which it provides both domestic service and international flights to Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Paraguay. The airline placed its original firm order–for seven of the airplanes–in July 2007, at which time it took options on eight more. It placed another firm order for three others in April last year, when Bombardier announced Pluna took an additional six options.
