BRITISH AEROSPACE'S Jetstream Aircraft division has sold ten Jetstream 41s to Air Atlantic - launching its latest product in Canada.

Jetstream says that the deal is worth about $70 million and first delivery is due in March, with four more following in the second quarter of the year and five more in 1997. It adds that the type replaces Air Atlantic's Bombardier de Havilland Dash 8-100s.

Air Atlantic is Canadian Airlines' code-share partner in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
