Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation (MAJ, Nagoya Chubu) says it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with an unspecified North American carrier for fifteen M100s (formerly the MRJ70).

In a statement issued during the 2019 Paris Air Show at Paris Le Bourget, the Japanese manufacturer said that if a final agreement is concluded, the aircraft would deliver from 2024 onwards.

"We are pleased to welcome a new airline to the SpaceJet program," said Hisakazu Mizutani, President, Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation. "We have received strong interest in this product from many airlines. They recognize that this family of aircraft will provide them with the ability to give their passengers an excellent experience while also delivering unmatched performance, creating new profit potential."

In the US market, the M100 can be configured to seat 65-76 passengers in a three-class configuration in compliance with local scope clause restrictions. However, it can also be configured for other global market needs with up to 88 seats in a single class layout as well.
