    NEW YORK (Reuters) - US Airways, which recently emerged from bankruptcy, on Monday said it has placed a $4.3 billion order for at least 170 regional jets from Canada's Bombardier Inc. (Toronto:BBDb.TO - News) and Brazil's Embraer SA (Sao Paolo:EMBR3.SA - News).

    The deal is part of US Airways' post-Chapter 11 strategy of expanding its network by developing short- and medium-range routes using the smaller regional jets. Arlington, Virginia-based US Airways, the nation's seventh largest, emerged from bankruptcy protection in March.
