Myanmar-based Air Mandalay has placed a firm order for six Mitsubishi Aircraft MRJ90s, taking purchase rights for an additional four.
Deliveries of the regional jets are scheduled to commence in 2018. Air Mandalay currently operates three ATR turboprops from its Yangon base, serving 15 domestic destinations and conducting charter services to Chiang Mai in Thailand.
The Mitsubishi Regional Jet has now accumulated 165 firm orders, plus 160 options.
Air Mandalay is the first Asian airline outside Japan to have selected the type.
