Mitsubishi Heavy in advanced talks to buy Bombardier's CRJ program - report

TOKYO, June 5 (Reuters) - Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd is in advanced discussions to buy Bombardier Inc's CRJ aircraft program, aviation publication Air Current reported, citing people familiar with the talks.

Bombardier had been in talks with other suitors but now is negotiating exclusively with Mitsubishi Heavy, Air Current said, adding that an announcement could come as soon as the Paris Air Show, which begins June 17, if a deal is finalized. A Mitsubishi Heavy representative could not immediately provide comment. (Reporting by Chris Gallagher and Maki Shiraki; Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman)
