According to Reuters.com, the Japanese manufacturing company intends to revamp the MRJ70 and rebrand it under the SpaceJet M100 moniker.
Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation has rebranded its regional jets as SpaceJets as it attempts to break into the USA market with the first Japanese-built airliner in nearly half a century.
Mitsubishi underscores the qualities of the SpaceJet family as "the most spacious and comfortable cabin in its class to drive improved passenger experience, created to boost passenger passenger loyalty".
The Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation has renamed its Mitsubishi Regional Jet, now known as Mitsubishi SpaceJet, and announced a redesigned, smaller model better configured to meet the needs of the USA regional jet market. "This could be a industrial division wherever we tend to see nice prospect". In the U.S. market, the aircraft is optimized to be scope clause compliant in the 65-76 seat, three-class cabin configuration. "The craft targets double-digit performance sweetening, and has all-time low operational prices of any craft in its category", in step with the manufacturer. within the meanwhile, the SpaceJet M90, antecedently acknowledged by its production name MRJ90, is at this time undergoing flight tests, that began in early March 2019.
"These products mark our dedication to a segment in desperate need of change that will allow airlines to enhance the satisfaction of their passengers and significantly improve their business performance", Mizutani said. It can also be flexibly configured for other global market needs up to 88 seats single class, with industry leading operating economics throughout the full range of configurations.
The MRJ90, which is in the homologation campaign, is now called the M90, while the MRJ70, a variant of smaller capacity, was given the designation M100.
Mitsubishi, which is also in talks with Bombardier to acquire the Canadian company's CRJ regional jet unit, says it sees good potential in what it describes as an underserved regional jet market. "Certification flight testing will be ongoing and we will continue to coordinate with the aviation authorities".
Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation chief development officer Alex Bellamy said the regional sector was an attractive market full of untapped growth potential.
"The SpaceJet family provides the missing link in a curb-to-curb experience for the next generation of travellers, while bringing a higher level of value to a neglected and undervalued market segment".
