France's Messier-Bugatti carbon-brakes manufacturer has clinched a major deal with Air China for its three Airbus A340-Growth jetliners.

This contract, the first for an A340 in China, could total more than $4 million over the life of the aircraft. Air China is a first-time customer for Messier-Bugatti, and the company's 20th customer for the A330/340 in partnership with BFGoodrich. Deliveries start in November 1997.
