Bombardier has announced that an "undisclosed Chinese customer" has ordered seven CRJ700 NextGen aircraft in a deal valued at $330 million.

"This latest order is a great step in establishing the CRJ700 NextGen aircraft as an excellent special mission aircraft," says Michel Bourgeois, president of specialised and amphibious aircraft, Bombardier Aerospace.

The $330 million deal includes "ancillary services", according to Bombardier.

The Canadian airframer provided no details about what the aircraft will be used for, or how they will be equipped.
