Rockton signs LoI with Mitsubishi
Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation and Rockton AB, a regional aircraft leasing company based in Sweden, have entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) for an order of ten firm MRJ90 aircraft with an option for an additional ten MRJ90 aircraft. Based on this LOI, the companies will move forward to conclude a definitive agreement in the near future. Rockton is the first European company in MRJ program to select the MRJ. Deliveries to Rockton are scheduled to commence in 2020. This new aircraft will provide crucial economic benefits to airlines looking to operate in the 70-90 passenger size segment, especially in comparison with current products. The MRJ fits well into the European market where noise and emission requirements are very stringent. Furthermore, the long range capability of the aircraft allows regional airlines to open new routes from local airports.
