Bombardier Aerospace to Attend Aviation Expo/China 2013

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 09/21/13 -- Bombardier Aerospace, the global leader in business aviation and the world's third largest civil aircraft manufacturer, will attend Aviation Expo/China 2013 to meet current and potential customers, further strengthen its long-term relationships with partners in the growing Chinese aviation industry and showcase its innovative range of aircraft and services.

Bombardier has identified China as one of the key growth markets that are part of its geographic diversification strategy. Dating back to the 1970s, Bombardier's involvement in China's aerospace industry has grown to include a significant fleet of business and commercial aircraft, as well as an increased focus on development and manufacturing opportunities. Most recently, in June 2013, Bombardier and COMAC signed a definitive agreement covering four projects as part of their long-term collaboration on leveraging commonalities between the C919 and CSeries airliners.

Over the next 20 years, Bombardier forecasts 2,420 business jet deliveries in Greater China, driven by the gradual removal of barriers to business jet ownership and operation, the acceleration in the opening of airspace for civil aviation and significant investments in airport infrastructure. With its comprehensive product portfolio and commitment to leadership in customer satisfaction, Bombardier continues to grow its leadership position in the business jet manufacturing industry. There are approximately 100 of Bombardier's Learjet, Challenger and Global business jets in operation in Greater China, representing a market share of approximately 34 per cent.

In its latest market forecast for 2013-2032, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft predicts that operators in Greater China will take delivery of 2,330 aircraft in the 20- to 149-seat commercial aircraft segment, making it the second most important region following the United States. More than 40 of Bombardier's commercial aircraft are currently in operation in Greater China with China Eastern Airlines, China Express Airlines, China United Airlines, Shandong Airlines, Shanghai Airlines and UNI Air. Bombardier's Q400 NextGen turboprop, CRJ NextGen regional jets and all-new CSeries airliners, the first of the new generation of narrowbody commercial aircraft to complete its maiden flight, are an ideal complement to China's domestic products and deliver the low operating costs, operational flexibility and reliability to meet the fleet expansion needs of Chinese operators.

Putting customers first locally, globally

Bombardier is committed to putting its customers first by offering the highest level of support as close as possible to their operational bases. As a part of its commitment to operators in China, Bombardier operates a localized customer service network, including a team of Field Service Representatives and Customer Support Account Managers, four Authorized Service Facilities, Regional Support Offices in Shanghai, Hong Kong and neighbouring Singapore, as well as two established parts depots in Beijing and Hong Kong. In addition, Bombardier continues to explore opportunities to increase its customer support presence in strategic locations across China.

Aviation Expo/China 2013 runs from Wednesday, September 25 to Saturday, September 28. Bombardier Aerospace's exhibit, which is located in the China National Convention Center (CNCC) at U1-1, will be closed on Saturday, September 28.
