Demonstrating its commitment to the Asia-Pacific marketplace, Bombardier Aerospace will attend the Singapore Airshow 2010. Held at the Changi Exhibition Centre from February 2 to 7, Bombardier Aerospace will take this opportunity to showcase four of its innovative aircraft and to update potential customers and the media on the progress of the new CSeries 110- to 130-seat single-aisle mainline aircraft, scheduled to enter service in 2013. On static display at the exhibit will be the Learjet 60XR, Challenger 850 and Global Express XRS business jets, as well as the Q400 NextGen turboprop airliner.
In recent years, Bombardier Aerospace’s activities in the Asia-Pacific have grown substantially in both the commercial and business aviation sectors. With business aircraft and regional aircraft sales offices located in Bejing and Hong Kong, the Company is well positioned to offer the right solutions to meet the needs of airlines and corporate travellers throughout the region.
“Asia-Pacific is a vibrant market which has enjoyed continuous growth in the recent years,” said David Dixon, Vice President, Sales, Asia-Pacific, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Singapore Air Show is an opportunity for us to reinforce our already strong presence in the region and to meet with our expanding customer base,” he added.
“Countries in the Asia-Pacific region continue to upgrade their airline transport infrastructures to more efficiently handle the steady growth of airlines and their passengers,” said Trung Ngo, Vice President, Sales, Asia-Pacific, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. “We believe we have the right product mix to meet a good part of this demand with our mainline CSeries aircraft, CRJ NextGen regional jets and Q400 NextGen turboprop airliners.”
Bombardier’s Business Aircraft market forecast predicts 1,030 deliveries for Asia over 2009-2018 while its 2009–2028 Commercial Aircraft Forecast anticipates that the Asia-Pacific region (excluding the People’s Republic of China) will take delivery of 1,550 aircraft in the 20- to 149-seat market. The demand for commercial aircraft will be weighted towards the 100- to 149-seat segment for which Bombardier is producing its CSeries family of aircraft.
