Bombardier Lands At Airshow China 2008 - Zhuhai

Bombardier Aerospace, a market leader in China for commercial and business aircraft, is participating in the seventh edition of Airshow China 2008, which is taking place in Zhuhai in the People’s Republic of China, from November 4 to 9. Bombardier aircraft on display at the show include the Bombardier Challenger 605, Global Express XRS and CRJ900 NextGen aircraft.  

 “Bombardier offers the widest range of business jets of any Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). The Chinese market for private aviation is poised for tremendous growth, and Bombardier is ready to provide travel and business solutions that are tailored to the requirements of corporate and government leaders in China,” said Jason Liao, Director of Sales, China, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Global Express XRS and the Challenger 605 aircraft are two fine examples of business jets that combine comfort, performance, speed and range to create an ideal mode of business or luxury transportation.”

According to Bombardier Aerospace’s market forecast, China represents 15 per cent of the    20- to 149-seat aircraft market over the next 20 years, or approximately 2,000 aircraft.  Currently, five commercial airlines in China operate a total of 25 CRJ Series regional jets. The airlines include China Eastern Yunnan Airlines, China Express Airlines, Kunpeng Airlines, Shandong Airlines and Shanghai Airlines. In addition, government agencies operate a total of 12 corporate variants of CRJ200 and CRJ700 aircraft. The corporate variants are configured as personnel shuttles. 

“Bombardier Commercial Aircraft is promoting all its market-leading products in Zhuhai – the CRJ NextGen regional jet with its enhanced cabin environment, the quiet Q400 turboprop, and the all-new CSeries airliner – the world’s newest and most advanced single-aisle aircraft designed to set new standards in technology, fuel efficiency and reduced environmental impact,” said Trung Ngo, Vice President, Sales Asia-Pacific, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. 

Bombardier’s aerospace activities in China have grown substantially in recent years as the Chinese marketplace shows increasingly strong interest in Bombardier’s comprehensive line of products. Bombardier has sales offices in Beijing and Hong Kong for both business aircraft and commercial aircraft.

Airshow China, organized with the backing of the government and the Chinse aviaiton and aerospace industries, will feature 60 exhibitors from 35 countries and expects over a quarter million people to visit the show.
