Bombardier continued its deliberate penetration of South and Central America last month with an order from Mexico’s AeroLineas MesoAmericanas (ALMA) for a pair of CRJ900s. Based in Guadalajara, ALMA began operations in June last year and already flies 15 fifty-seat CRJ200s to 25 Mexican destinations. The order came on the heels of a separate deal to deliver four Q400 turboprops to Arik Air of Nigeria. A recent customer for four CRJ900s, Arik plans to use the Q400s to expand services to field-restricted legs such as Lagos-Port Harcourt, where it now flies three 50-seat Q300s.
