South African carrier CemAir has signed a letter of intent for two Bombardier Q400 turboprops at the Paris air show.

The deal, if confirmed, is valued at a list price of $65 million.

"With their impressive short-runway performance and the flexibility it brings to our operations, the Q Series turboprops have allowed us to build our network and fly passengers from more airports," says CemAir's chief executive Miles van der Molen. "We are looking forward to the addition of these brand new Q400 aircraft which will help us support our growth and increase connectivity in South Africa."

Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that CemAir operates five CRJs, two Dash 8-300s and one -100, as well as seven Hawker Beechcraft 1900Ds.
