American Airlines has taken delivery of the first of 30 enhanced CRJ900 NextGen aircraft from Bombardier. The aircraft will be operated by American Airlines’ wholly owned subsidiary, PSA Airlines. PSA is the launch customer for the enhanced CRJ900 NextGen regional jet, which offers a fuel consumption reduction of up to 5.5 per cent. “We look forward to integrating the enhanced CRJ900 NextGen aircraft into our fleet and to expanding service for our customers,” said Keith Houk, president of PSA Airlines. “The new CRJ900 NextGen aircraft will provide us with new opportunities and signal a bright future for PSA.” The purchase agreement for the aircraft, which was announced in December 2013, also included options for an additional 40 CRJ900 NextGen aircraft.
