Massive MRJ letter of intent form Trans States
Mitsubishi Aircraft announced today that it has signed a Letter of Intent with Trans States Holdings for an order of 100 next-generation Mitsubishi Regional Jets (50 firm, 50 options).
TSH is based in St. Louis, Missouri and is an airline holding company that owns and operates two independent airlines, Trans States Airlines and GoJet Airlines, both of which are large U.S. regional airlines. TSH is entrusted with feeder services for United Airlines and US Airways.
TSH President Richard A. Leach said, “We believe that the MRJ is a game-changing regional jet that takes into account the environment, as well as passenger and airline needs. The MRJ will reduce fuel consumption, noise and NOx emissions—this means savings on operating costs.”
This order, combined with the March 27, 2008 order for 25 aircraft (15 firm, 10 options) from All Nippon Airways Co., Ltd., brings the current number of orders for the MRJ to 125 aircraft (65 firm, 60 options).
