Bombardier has firmed up an order worth up to $683 million for 20 Q400s from Canadian low-cost carrier WestJet.

WestJet signed a letter of intent to buy 20 Q400s with 25 options on 1 May.

Delivery is timed for the second half of next year, as WestJet launches a new regional carrier.

The value of the deal could rise $1.59 billion based on list prices if the options are converted to firm orders.
