Name change for Mitsubishi MRJ

In line with the recent announcement, we have renamed the Mitsubishi MRJ to the Mitsubishi SpaceJet.

Split of ‘Business Jets – Bizliners’ Market Grouping

Based on customer feedback, we’ve decided to split the Business Jets – Bizliners Market Grouping into 2 distinct groups i.e.:

  • Business Jets – Bizliners – Widebody e.g. 747 BBJ, A330 ACJ
  • Business Jets – Bizliners – Narrowbody e.g. 737 BBJ, A319 ACJ

As part of this split, we’ve also moved additional aircraft types into the ‘Business Jets – Large’ Market Grouping e.g. Legacy 600/650, Challenger 850/870

Change to serial number format of Cessna 208 Caravan

Based on customer feedback and to bring consistency across the OEM in our data, we have recently added a “-“ character into all serial numbers for the Cessna 208 Caravan.

This means that all Textron Aviation (Cessna) types in our data have a dash as standard in the msn format.

Changes will show in Fleets Analyzer from 24th January.
