Bombardier Aerospace on Thursday announced an order for several Learjet business jets, worth an estimated $81 million.

An undisclosed customer ordered 6 of the Learjet model 75 business jets, which are manufactured in Wichita.

"The Learjet 75 aircraft is a blend of innovative technology, modern cabin design and legendary Learjet aircraft performance," said Steve Ridolfi, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "We look forward to delivering the first aircraft next year, as Learjet celebrates its 50th anniversary."

The Learjet 75 business jets were first unveiled earlier this year at EBACE European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva. Entry into service is scheduled for the first half of 2013.
