Bombardier said to win order for $2.2B in jets

NEW YORK — Bombardier Inc. says it received a firm order for 38 business jets with a combined list price of about $2.2 billion.

Bombardier didn’t disclose the precise value of the deal — customers such as airlines routinely get discounts from plane manufacturers — and didn’t identify the buyer.

The Canadian plane maker said Friday that the order covered 28 Global jets and 10 Challenger 605 aircraft that can carry 12 passengers and a crew of three.

A spokeswoman for the Montreal-based company did not immediately return a call for comment.
