- Sixth Canadair Regional Jet Built
- Operated for Lufthansa Cityline, ALMA de Mexico, Jetlink Air, Rwandair and Marsland Aviation.
- Originally a RJ100ER, converted to RJ100LR and then RJ200LR configuration.
C-GRJO, 7006, was the sixth Canadair Regional Jet built and began its service life with Lufthansa Cityline. 7005 was delivered as D-ACLC and was configured as a RJ100ER aircraft. All CRJs in Cityline’s first order were to be registered in the D-ACL series. Like other members of the CityLine CRJ fleet, 7006 underwent an update to the RJ100LR configuration and then the RJ200LR configuration in October 2005.
The aircraft flew in various Lufthansa titles as did all of the CityLine CRJ fleet during their service. 7006 was withdrawn from service in 2006 and then returned to Bombardier. The aircraft was stored for a time with Bombardier before being leased on to ALMA de Mexico for a short period of time as XA-UHB. After the collapse of ALMA, 7006 was sold to Jetlink Air who registered 7006 as 5Y-JLB and subleased 7006 to Rwandair and Marsland Aviation. As of September 2012, 7006 still operates with Jetlink Air in their colour scheme.
