Confusion surrounded the status of Gulf Air's order for Bombardier CSeries regional jets July 6, as reports on several European aviation sites suggested the Bahraini carrier had canceled the deal.
Bombardier insisted the contract was still valid.
Quotes attributed to the Bahraini national carrier's CEO, Krešimir Kučko, said the company had decided not to proceed with its order for 10 CS100s.
Friday is the Islamic day of rest and attempts to contact Gulf Air spokesman July 6 were unsuccessful.
The status of the Gulf Air order has been uncertain for some time. Having initially placed an order in 2012, the airline was caught up in the protracted development and certification of the Canadian regional jet.
