Bombardier Near $1.1 Billion C Series Deal With EgyptAir

EgyptAir Airlines Co. is poised to expand its fleet with a flurry of deals for long-range and short-haul aircraft, including a $1.1 billion order for Bombardier Inc’s C Series jets, people familiar with the matter said. The Cairo-based company is expected to announce a firm order for 12 CS300 jets as early as Tuesday at the Dubai Air Show, said the people, who asked not to be named because the talks are private. Airbus SE has also been in talks to secure a commitment for its A320neo single-aisle jetliners, the people said.
