TORONTO (Reuters) - Bombardier Inc (BBDb.TO: Quote) said on Friday it had secured a firm order for business jets in a contract valued at about $340 million, which could grow to about $1.5 billion if all conditional orders are confirmed.

Bombardier, the third-largest civil aircraft manufacturer, said that the order had been placed by an undisclosed European customer for 110 Learjet 60 XR aircraft, of which 25 are firm orders and 85 are conditional orders.

The deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2009.
