									Bombardier Terminates Purchase Agreement With MyAir.com of Italy


CRJ1000 NextGen Jetliner Program Continues to Move Forward

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - August 11, 2009) - Bombardier Aerospace has
terminated its firm order purchase agreement with MyAir.com of Italy in respect of all
remaining undelivered aircraft. Originally this firm order was announced on September
25, 2006 for the sale of 19 CRJ900 aircraft to My Way Airlines. On February 19, 2007,
Bombardier announced that 15 of the 19 orders for CRJ900 aircraft were converted to the
larger CRJ1000 aircraft. Four CRJ900 aircraft have been delivered to the airline.
Bombardier's decision comes as the air carrier is facing an uncertain situation.

The development program for Bombardier's 100-seat CRJ1000 NextGen airliner
continues to move ahead. The first CRJ1000 NextGen production aircraft (S/N 19001)
has successfully completed its first flight at Mirabel and continues to fly from its test base
of Wichita, Kansas. Moreover, the simulator for the CRJ1000 NextGen aircraft has been
qualified to Interim Level C - a rating that confirms high-fidelity simulation data. The
CRJ1000 NextGen jetliner program is well supported by a strong customer base and 49
firm orders.
