Air Canada's regional arm has leased four more Bombardier CRJ200s from GE Capital Aviation Services, for delivery in the third quarter, in addition to six aircraft leased in January for delivery in the second quarter. All 10 CRJs, which will replace the same number of Fokker F28s, were formerly flown by Midway Airlines. Air Canada's existing CRJs are flown by the mainline carrier. Royal Jordanian has signed a lease-purchase agreement with Airbus for two second-hand A340-200s for delivery in mid-September. Sibaviatrans, based in Krasnoyarsk, has ordered 10 Ilyushin Il-114-100s turboprops - the version equipped with TV-7 engines. The airline will take delivery of the aircraft in 2003-2005.
