Dec 31 (Reuters) - Canadian planemaker Bombardier Inc said it received a firm order from China Express Airlines for 10 CRJ900 jets for about $462.6 million based on the list price of the aircraft.

China Express, a private regional airline based in Guizhou province, has ordered 38 of these aircraft of which 20 have been delivered to date, Bombardier said.
