Bombardier Aerospace today announced that OMNI Avia��o - a leading aircraft charter and services company headquartered in Cascais, Portugal - has placed orders for a super midsize Challenger 300 jet and a light Learjet 40 XR aircraft. The transaction is valued at approximately $29 million US, based on the list price for typically equipped aircraft.

Both business jets will be operated by OMNI's subsidiary Aero Services, France's largest business aviation charter services provider, and will be based at Paris-Le Bourget Airport, where they will join Omni's super light Learjet 45 jet as the company continues to reenergize its fleet with new high-performance jets. Upon entry into service, OMNI's two new jets will also join Skyjet International's growing European network.

"We successfully launched Learjet 45 aircraft service at Le Bourget in February 2006, and we are confident that both the Learjet 40 XR jet and the Challenger 300 aircraft will be superb additions to our fleet," said Jose Miguel da Costa, chief executive officer, OMNI Avia��o/Aero Services. "Both aircraft are exceptionally well suited for the European charter environment, each offering exceptional cabin comfort, superior payload-range and top performance in their respective categories. We are looking forward to offering our passengers the exceptional experience of flying on these jets."

Bombardier also announced Aero Services' Paris Le Bourget facility as an Aircraft On Ground/Line Maintenance Facility (AOG/LMF) for Bombardier Learjet aircraft. The Aero Services facility can accommodate the complete family of Learjet aircraft in their maintenance hangar.

"As we welcome Aero Services to our international network - Bombardier's first AOG/LMF in France - we also highlight our goal to offer top quality service and support to the growing Learjet operator base in this country and throughout Europe," said James Hoblyn, senior vice-president, customer experience. "This is Bombardier's third authorized service facility announcement at EBACE 2007, underlining our commitment to service and support expansion in Europe. Yesterday, we announced that Jet Aviation in Basel, Switzerland and Aero-Dienst in Nuremberg, Germany are both expanding their Bombardier business jet services portfolios."
