Earlier in the day, EgyptAir and Bombardier announced a letter of intent for 12 firm Bombardier CS300s jets, valued at $1.1 billion, according to a statement by the Canadian plane and train maker.

The deal includes 12 additional aircraft with purchase rights.

It represents another shot in the arm for Bombardier, which last month signed an agreement with Airbus to take a majority stake in its aircraft programme as it faced the prospect of punishing USA tariffs.

Lidl Now UK's Fastest Growing Supermarket For Fifth Consecutive Period
Sales at Iceland increased by 1.1 per cent, with share falling slightly to 2.0 per cent - down from 2.1 per cent past year . Discounter Lidl was Britain's fastest growing supermarket for the fifth straight period with sales up 15.1%.

"We undertook a thorough evaluation process of our fleet and realized that the CS300 would fit perfectly into our business plans and growth strategy", EgyptAir's chairman Safwat Musallam said. "We look forward to expanding our network with the CS300".

Earlier this month an unnamed European airline said it meant to buy at least 31 of the C-Series planes.

Bombardier has faced a series of problems over the plane, most recently a trade dispute in the U.S. that imposed a 300% import tariff.
