Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation Statement: Cancellation of Trans States Holdings Contract

Posted by Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation News Team on Oct 31, 2019 1:30:00 PM

Nagoya (Japan) – October 31, 2019 – Today, Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation announced the termination of its contract with Trans States Holdings, Inc. (TSH), a privately-owned holding company for three regional airlines. After close discussions, the decision was made to cancel the contract for the Mitsubishi SpaceJet M90 – 50 firm orders with 50 options – as the variant does not meet the requirements of the United States
market. Future discussions will be focused on the scope compliant SpaceJet M100 aircraft.

“TSH has been a long-time proponent of our aircraft program and we look forward to continuing discussions regarding a potential order for the SpaceJet M100 product,” said Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation President Hisakazu Mizutani. “When we established our contract with TSH, the outlook on the regional market was very different. Scope clause has not relaxed as anticipated. We have since shifted our strategy to be responsive to the market realities in the U.S., in partnership with our airline customers. We are confident that the SpaceJet M100 presents us with a market-leading aircraft for North America.”
