Bombardier Aerospace has delivered the first of six CRJ1000 NextGen regional jets ordered by PT. Garuda Indonesia (Persero) Tbk, the aircraft's launch customer in the Asia-Pacific region. The Indonesian flag carrier also intends to operate 12 additional CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft through a third-party lease agreement and holds options on 18 more aircraft of the same type.

"We are pleased to add it to our fleet and to be the first carrier to introduce the aircraft to the Asia-Pacific region."
