Bombardier added another name to its list of customers for its new 100-seat CRJ1000 last month, when Slovenia’s Adria Airways signed for one of the big regional jets as part of a firm order that also included a pair of 86-seat CRJ900s. A long-time Bombardier customer, Adria placed its first order for CRJ200s in March 1997. It now operates seven of the 50-seat airplanes and, since this past May, a pair of CRJ900s. Based in the Slovenian capital Ljubljana, Adria serves as Bombardier’s recognized CRJ service center for Europe, where it performs heavy maintenance on all of the Canadian manufacturer’s regional jet models.
